Divorce is the termination of marriage, ending its sanctity and disregarding the responsibilities of both parties upon marriage. In the US, nearly half of the population of married couples divorce every year. Divorce in New Jersey and the rest of the nation have decreased by a few percentage for the last few years due to economic turndown.

Divorce does not only summarize separation; it also has different types, depending on the situation of the married couple prior to their agreed upon separation. There are six types of divorce and the severity and cost of each varies.

1. No fault divorce is the type which both parties agree that nobody is at fault in the end of the marriage. There are no allegations or proof that one party is at fault.
2. At fault divorce, otherwise, points a party of committing intolerable acts during marriage which are enough to be grounds for separation. This type of divorce is more expensive compared to no fault divorce.
3. Summary divorce is also known as simple divorce. Summary divorce in New Jersey and other states can have factors such as short marriage, minimal property, having no children, properties are under threshold.

4. Uncontested divorce means both the parties have a pre-agreement on child custody, division of assets and liabilities, and such. If otherwise the couple does not come to an agreement, the court decides on the child custody, division or properties, and so on.
5. Collaborative divorce requires the assistance of a divorce attorney or a coach to come up with a resolution. Although the couple is free to make decisions on their own, the coach or the lawyer should be informed for professional support.
6. Mediated divorce requires a mediator - either a lawyer of each party or a neutral lawyer to assist communication and discussion among parties. This aims so solve differences and conflicts among parties. However, the discussion will still lead to divorce at the end. This is a less emotionally painful and inexpensive type of divorce. The adherence of divorce in New Jersey using this type is high.
