New York Now Accepting No-Fault Divorce Cases

By Sheryl Rentz on August 25, 2010

No-fault divorce is now available in every state across the country, thanks to legislation recently signed into law by New York Governor David Paterson. According to Fox40 WICZ-TV, New York, which previously rejected no-fault divorces, has become the final state to accept the reasoning as a motive for couples to officially end their marriages. According to the new law, a disgruntled spouse needs only declare that a marriage simply isn’t working out, and their request for a divorce will be granted.

Regardless of what the circumstances surrounding a potential divorce may be, it is essential that the services of an experienced divorce attorney are retained in order to ensure that an amicable outcome is obtained for all. Issues related to divorce, such as property division, child custody, and alimony payments need to be carefully examined in order to arrive at agreements that work out best for both parties involved. When children are caught in the middle of a divorce, it is even more crucial that their best interests are kept in mind at all times, so as to retain as much normalcy in their lives as possible.

Under the new law, New Yorkers may request a divorce after swearing that their marriage has been more or less over for a period of at least six months immediately prior to the request being made. This is the same law that Pennsylvania residents are able to take advantage of when they find it best to file for divorce.
