Common Law Marriage in NJ

The Williams Law Group focuses on Common Law. Common Law is a prevalent legal system and is an applicable law system in the United States. This legal system originated from England during the middle ages.

The NJ Common Law Marriage system has no written constitution or codified laws. Therefore, it has no comprehensive compilation of legal rules and statutes. However, this type of legal system does rely on some scattered statutes, which are legislative decisions that are largely based on the judicial decisions that have already been made in similar cases. These judicial decisions are maintained over time through the records of the courts as well as historically documented in collections of case law known as yearbooks and reports. The precedents to be applied in the decision of each new case are determined by the presiding judge.

Common law functions as an adversarial system, a contest between two opposing parties before a judge who moderates. A jury of ordinary people without legal training decides on the facts of the case. The judge then determines the appropriate sentence based on the jury’s verdict. At times Common law can be flexible and adaptive to changing circumstances because judges can establish new doctrines or change the foregoing.
