Separation Agreement vs. Divorce vs. Judgement of Divorce from Bed & Board

In many ways, a separation agreement is much like a divorce. In New Jersey, a separation agreement requires couples to arrive at an agreement on many of the same issues that arise during a divorce.

There is also a Judgement of Divorce from Bed and Board in the State of New Jersey. Couples are able to obtain a Judgement of Divorce from Bed and Board in the same way they can obtain a divorce, except both parties must agree to it. Neither party can remarry until it becomes an absolute divorce.

Divorces and separation agreements both address the following:

Though there are some similarities, there is one significant difference: A separation agreement in NJ does not officially terminate a marriage. Though the couple has decided to live apart, they remain married.

A couple may choose a separation agreement because:

  • It gives them time to address their differences
  • It allows them to test the waters of living apart
  • It provides a better financial option than divorce
  • It allows both parties to remain on the same insurance plan
  • It satisfies divorce prerequisites in case the couple decides to divorce
  • It allows them to maintain their convictions against divorce
  • It is easily reversed so couples can resume living together right away
