Not just any divorce attorney. Learn what makes Jay D. Raxenberg Long Islands choice for Divorce Law.
An interesting article was published in the New York Times on June 15, 2010. Currently, in order to obtain a divorce in New York the parties must allege a fault ground (constructive abandonment, adultery, cruel and inhumane treatment, imprisonment for 3 or more consecutive years, or if the parties live apart pursuant to a separation agreement for a period of one year). New York is the only state that still requires fault grounds.
According to the article, a no-fault divorce bill was approved in the state Senate and moved to Assembly for approval. If the Assembly approves the bill, New York will join all of the other states that allow “no-fault divorce” whereby parties can allege irreconcilable differences as the “ground” to obtain a divorce.
