If you have been separated for more than eighteen months without cohabitation you can obtain a "no-fault' divorce from your spouse and be awarded child support, possibly alimony, and an equitable distribution of your marital property. If you have not been separated for eighteen months you can still obtain a divorce by alleging grounds, most use the grounds of "general indignities" which allege that life in the marriage became intolerable.
