Changes in New York Divorce Law: No-Fault Divorce

The state of New York has joined the others in offering "no fault" as the basis for a divorce. This makes it much easier to file for divorce in Suffolk County. The amendment to the State's Domestic Relations Law §170 allows New York residents to file for divorce based upon an "irretrievable breakdown" of the marriage. If one spouse in a marriage claims, under oath, that the marriage suffered an "irretrievable breakdown" for six months prior to filing for divorce, the marriage dissolution may proceed more easily.

The process of divorce remains a complex issue, however, and obtaining experienced guidance from a matrimonial law attorney is strongly advised when contemplating ending a marriage. Suffolk County divorce lawyer Jane Cristal, Esq. is available to guide you through the process. She can carefully explain the changes in the law that will affect your divorce.

  • Living separately and apart under a separation agreement (for 1 year or longer)
