Understanding No-Fault Divorce
Significant changes have recently been made in regard to divorce in New York. In August of 2010, new laws were passed affecting divorce, temporary spousal support and attorney fees in family law matters. Perhaps the most important change is the fact that New Yorkers may now file for divorce on a "no-fault" basis. A spouse may file for divorce on the grounds that the marriage is irretrievably broken and has been for a period of at least 6 months. Prior to this, spouses could only file for divorce based upon the following grounds: adultery, abandonment, abuse, imprisonment or separation for one year. This is no longer the case.
Additional changes were made in regard to the award of temporary maintenance to a spouse who makes less than two-thirds of the income of the other party in a divorce. Other changes that were made affect the award of attorney fees in divorce, enforcement and modification proceedings to the spouse with significantly less income. We welcome you to contact our offices to learn more about how these new laws may affect you. Recent legislation affecting the outcome of your case can also be explained to you, as well as any issues relating to
