The decision to end your marriage is not one that should be taken lightly. There are many moving parts associated with a divorce and each one must be handled with tact for the best possible outcome.

We would be honored to do the same for you.

What do I need to know before I file for divorce?

New York allows couples to file for divorce if they can agree that there has been an "irretrievable breakdown" in their marriage. This is based on "no-fault" grounds and essentially means that there is no hope of reconciliation. In order to get a no-fault divorce, one spouse must state that the marriage has brown down irretrievably for six months or longer.

Other grounds for divorce include the following:

  • Cruel treatment
  • Abandonment for one year prior to filing
  • Imprisonment for three or more years
  • Adultery
  • One year has passed after a separation agreement

After one spouse files for divorce, both will need to agree on important issues like asset division, alimony, and child custody and support. If spouses cannot agree, the divorce is considered 'contested' and the court's involvement may become necessary.

Depending on your circumstances, a divorce can take anywhere from several weeks to several years to finalize. An attorney is beneficial throughout the process to guide discussions between you and your spouse and ensure that you don't walk away with less than you deserve.
