New Jersey divorce proceedings can drag on if couples don't agree

New Jersey fans of Kim Kardashian have probably been following the latest news concerning her divorce from NBA player Kris Humphries. The newest twist in the lengthy divorce saga concerns the reality star's pregnancy. She has asked for a judge to declare the marriage officially over so she can move on with her life. The proceedings have dragged on since Oct. 2011.

She has asked for a speedy trial or for the divorce to be granted while they continue to work out financial issues. However, Humphries has continued to press for an annulment based upon allegations that the marriage was a fraud. He has argued that Karashian's seemingly unplanned pregnancy should not be a reason to rush the proceedings.

Kardashian asserts she became pregnant after she separated from her husband. Understandably, she does not wish to still be married to Humphries when she gives birth. She requested the litigation be expedited for her own health and that of her unborn child. She also added financial reasons for the request. Kardashian claims the divorce proceedings are preventing her from making new investments.

New Jersey couples in the midst of a contested divorce may find themselves in for lengthy proceedings, especially when a spouse does not agree on the basis for the proposed dissolution. While there does not appear to be a chance for reconciliation, Humphries has continues to insist the marriage was a sham and seems intent on having the court rule on the issue. Unless the parties can forge an agreement between themselves, it will now be up to a judge to decide what happens next and when it will occur.
