Common Myths Surrounding Divorce Proceedings in Oradell

Big Statue Despite the prevalence of divorce (not only in Oradell, but throughout New Jersey and the United States as a whole), many myths and misconceptions about the divorce process exist. If you believe any of these myths and/or misconceptions, you may find yourself in a precarious legal position. Common myths include:

  • My spouse can’t get a divorce if I don’t agree to it. A court can grant the filing spouse’s petition for divorce even if the other spouse does not agree to the divorce or does not believe the marriage is irretrievably broken.
  • If my spouse doesn’t know where I am, he/she cannot get a divorce. In an effort to frustrate their spouses’ attempts to divorce, some individuals choose to move away or go into hiding believing that if they are not served with a copy of the petition, then the petition for divorce cannot be granted. While a court may not be able to enter the full panoply of orders it normally would in a divorce case if one spouse cannot be located, this does not prevent the court from granting a petition for divorce.
  • My children get to decide where they want to live when my spouse and I divorce . While a court may be inclined to take your children’s wishes into account when determining with whom your children will primarily reside, the court will enter custody and visitation orders it believes are in your children’s best interests.
