No-Fault Compared to Fault
Every state in the country allows for a no-fault divorce that can be filed for basically any reason. For example, if you do not want to air your metaphorical dirty laundry when you file for divorce, you can choose the no-fault option and cite “irreconcilable differences.” However, New York still allows you to file for divorce based on specific grounds.
Grounds for divorce recognized by New York courts include:
- Cruel or inhumane treatment
- Irretrievable breakdown of marriage for 6 months or longer
Filing for divorce and citing specific grounds can be useful if you want to sway the court to rule in your favor on certain aspects. For the most part, though, it is not necessary. With the help of an experienced legal team like you’ll find at our law firm, you can bring those same issues up in your no-fault divorce with just as much effectiveness and purpose. Generally, it is not advised to file for a grounds-based divorce.
