The Grounds for a New York Divorce Law Have Changed

New York has now become the final state to allow no-fault divorce. Now, a New York divorce can be granted if one party swears that there has been an irretrievable breakdown of the marriage for a period of at least six months.  The parties continue to have the option of alleging and proving one of the other five grounds listed in the Domestic Relations Law:

  • Cruel and inhuman treatment
  • Adultery
  • Abandonment for at least one year, including constructive abandonment
  • Incarceration for at least three consecutive years
  • Living separate and apart pursuant to a separation agreement for at least one year
