New York State Divorce Law
No-fault divorce was enacted in New York on Aug. 15, 2010.
Previously, New York divorces could only be accomplished through fault-based grounds, such as cruel and inhuman treatment, abandonment for a continuous time period of one year or more, adultery, imprisonment of one of the spouses for more than three years, or conversion of a separation agreement after living apart for one year or more.
Even uncontested divorces had to be made on the basis of one of the fault-based grounds for divorce.
No-Fault Divorce Laws Ease Legal Restrictions
With the passage of New York’s no-fault divorce laws, married partners can now dissolve their marriages after declaring that the marriage is irretrievably broken after six months. This has created a more streamlined legal process where spouses do not have to prove any wrongdoing to file for a divorce.
If you and your spouse can agree on issues such as child custody and visitation, child support, spousal maintenance, and division of marital property, time-consuming and costly divorce litigation can be avoided. However, all of these divorce-related issues must be resolved before a New York divorce can be finalized.
