Dukes of Hazard Star Headed for Divorce
By Snyder & Sarno on December 24, 2014
John Schneider, the actor most famous for his role portraying Bo Duke on the Dukes of Hazard, has recently stated that he and his wife are getting divorced. According to Huffington Post, the actor’s wife filed for divorce in Los Angeles citing irreconcilable differences and asking for spousal support.
Like California, New Jersey also allows a spouse to cite irreconcilable differences as a basis for divorce. This is a no-fault basis for divorce, meaning there was no wrongdoing by the other party justifying divorce. A second no-fault basis for divorce in New Jersey is separation, which means the couple has lived apart for a period of 18 months or more and does not anticipate a reconciliation.
In New Jersey, a party also has the option for filing a fault-based divorce. A fault-based divorce alleges that there was some wrongdoing by the other party justifying the divorce. In New Jersey, the fault-based causes of action, as outlined in N.J.S.A. 2A:34-2, include: adultery, desertion, extreme cruelty, substance abuse, institutionalization, imprisonment, or deviant sexual conduct. Each has their own definition or meaning.
