In New York, to get Divorced, you need to satisfy both Grounds and Residency Requirements. A Ground is a reason for the Divorce. These Grounds have to be proven. Proving a Ground could be quite complicated.

In 2010, No-Fault Divorce was signed into New York law. A No-Fault Divorce is a Ground that states that a marriage has Irretrievably Broken Down for a period of at least 6 months. This is significant because it is potentially an easier Ground to “satisfy.” If one believes it to be true, they can set forth that the Ground for their Divorce is that it has Irretrievably Broken Down for a period of at least 6 months and they bring a No-Fault Divorce. This does not mean the Divorce will not be contested.

No-Fault Divorce is not the same as an Uncontested Divorce though. Please check out my blog page going forward as I will explain what an Uncontested Divorce is.
