In today’s world, families move around the country and around the globe more than ever. When referring to “out of state” divorce, our Spring Lake divorce lawyer can represent clients in either one of the following situations:
You are living in New Jersey and your spouse lives out of state. In this case, your actions will be mostly the same.

If Either Spouse Does not Live in New Jersey, Can a Divorce be Finalized in Monmouth County?
The short answer is yes, the fact that either spouse is not physically present will not prevent a divorce from being finalized. Even when a spouse has moved out of the state or out of the county, an Ocean County attorney can facilitate a successful divorce agreement addressing all of the following:
- Division of Marital Assets – during a marriage, jointly held assets must be divided between spouses equitably, though not necessarily evenly
- Alimony – spousal support is frequently a consideration in New Jersey divorce to provide for a spouse in need of financial help
- Child Support – for co-parents, child support assists the custodial parent with the many expenses of child rearing. If a divorce is finalized in New Jersey, then state laws will govern your child support agreement and be enforced across the country
- Child Custody – issues of physical and legal child custody are also enforceable across state lines
