In order to file for divorce in the State of New York, the law requires that a couple must provide grounds (a legal reason) for the termination of their marriage. Whatever the grounds may be, some couples can move forward with a divorce by resolving their issues privately. If a couple is able to agree on all the terms of their divorce, including child custody, support, or property distribution, the couple can enter what is called an uncontested divorce.
Benefits of Filing an Uncontested Divorce Include:
In New York, adultery does affect divorce because couples are given the option to seek a “fault” divorce. This means that divorce, poor treatment, and abandonment can be treated as a marital fault. Usually, adultery is not considered when awarding alimony or dividing marital property.
In New York, if you and your spouse have been separated for at least one year or if there's been an “irretrievable breakdown of the marriage” for at least six months you can seek a no-fault divorce.. Couples can also seek a divorce after entering into a separation agreement and living apart for at least one year.
Under New York’s equitable distribution laws, a wife is entitled to “marital property” during a divorce. This means that you and your spouse will get to keep any separate property that was brought into the marriage.
The state of New York allows couples to go through a divorce process out of court through the process of mediation. Through mediation, a couple can have the opportunity to negotiate with one another concerning the divorce. This allows couples to maintain a sense of control over their marital situations.
