Case law in NJ is that the engagement ring is a conditional gift, conditioned upon the marriage. If the engagement is called off, it should be returned.

Keep in mind that this advice is based purely on the little bit of information that you have given to me. There certainly may be other factors that would change my opinion. Further, no one can rely on advice from an attorney who has not been retained. Since it appears that you have not retained an attorney, you should contact a Family Law attorney in your area to discuss your matter in more detail. Only then will you be able to rely on the advice. Good luck! Rob Gleaner
