ASSEMBLY, No. 483
STATE OF NEW JERSEY
DATED: OCTOBER 23, 2006
The Assembly Judiciary Committee reports favorably Assembly Bill No. 483.
This bill amends N.J.S.2A:34-2 concerning the causes for divorce. The bill adds new grounds for divorce, providing that a divorce will be granted on grounds of "irreconcilable differences which have caused the breakdown of the marriage for a period of six months and which make it appear that the marriage should be dissolved and that there is no reasonable prospect of reconciliation."
This bill was prefiled for introduction in the 2006 session pending technical review. As reported, the bill includes the changes required by technical review which has been performed.
