New Jersey law provides the following grounds for divorce:
The fault or wrongdoing of a party in a divorce action has no bearing on how assets will be divided that were acquired during the marriage. The Court may, but rarely does, consider the grounds for divorce as a factor in determining alimony. So even though fault is an emotional factor in a divorce, it has little influence on the terms of a final settlement.
