New Jersey Divorce Recognized in India, Willful Desertion

Dec 8, 2016 @ 07:00 PM — by Michael Green

New Jersey Divorce Recognized in India - Willful Desertion 

New Jersey Family Courts recognize the cause of action for divorce of "willful desertion" or "willful and continued desertion" for greater than 12 months.  In India, the Indian Courts will generally recognize a New Jersey divorce or foreign divorce if the cause of action is one that is recognized in India.  An Indian divorce cause of action exists for desertion or abandonment for greater than 2 years.  So, if a party may obtain a New Jersey divorce for desertion, generally that divorce will be upheld in an Indian Court and the New Jersey divorce will be recognized as the divorce of the parties in India. 

If you have an issue with parties that are Indian or that would otherwise seek a divorce in India, call our office at 732-390-0480 or 201-242-1119 for a free consultation and ask us about our flat fees.  We have an East Brunswick divorce office and Fort Lee divorce office.  Our NJ divorce lawyer

What if I have children, can I leave with the children. These are all very good questions, that are often fact dependent. Regardless, often, there is no problem with a party leaving the marital residence prior to a divorce becoming finalized, but it can be dependent on whether or not the status quo bills for the parties marital residence, spousal support and child support are being paid. If there is a an issue of domestic violence that must be taken into account as to whether or not a party must leave the marital residence. Call us if you have questions regarding these issues.
