Am I Eligible to File for Divorce in NY?

If you're considering filing for divorce in New York, you may be wondering if you're eligible to do so. In order to file for divorce in the state of New York, one of the spouses must have lived in the state for at least 2 years prior to filing. However, if both spouses agree to the divorce and the reason for the divorce occurred in New York, the residency requirement may be waived.

Additionally, the grounds for divorce in New York can be either fault-based or no-fault. Fault grounds include adultery, abandonment, cruelty, and imprisonment, while no-fault grounds include an irretrievable breakdown of the marriage for a period of at least six months.

It's important to consult with a qualified Carmel divorce attorney to ensure that you meet all of the eligibility requirements and to guide you through the divorce process in New York.

New York Contested vs. Uncontested Divorce

In New York, there are two types of divorce: contested and uncontested. Contested divorce means that both parties cannot agree on the terms of the divorce, such as child custody, division of assets, and spousal support. On the other hand, uncontested divorce means that both parties have agreed on all the terms and there is no need for a trial. Although uncontested divorce seems like the easier and more peaceful option, it still requires legal assistance and documentation. It's important to consult with a divorce lawyer in Carmel, NY to ensure that all agreements are fair and legally binding.
