No-Fault Divorce May Soon Be Allowed in New York

By Sheryl Rentz on July 20, 2010

On any given day, no-fault divorce is cited throughout most of the country as the primary reason why a marriage simply didn’t work. Of the 50 states, New York remains the lone holdout state that does not allow no-fault divorces in its court system. However, according to a USA Today article, no-fault divorces may soon be cited throughout the entire country, including New York, if legislation already approved by the New York State Senate is also agreed upon by a state Assembly conference committee.

According to statistics, the marriage rate in the United States in 2008 was 7.1 per 1,000 people, while the divorce rate was 3.5 per 1,000. This essentially supports the common adage that one out of every two marriages ends in divorce. Regardless of which reasons are cited for a divorce, a host of different elements need to be carefully examined in order to come to an agreement that is amiable for both parties. While many people hope that a marriage will inevitably improve over time, sometimes the differences are simply too great, and parties have no choice but to file for separation. For such parties in New York, declaring a divorce to be no-fault may soon be a possibility.

Divorces in Pennsylvania and throughout the United States can be complicated. While one party may feel strongly that a certain aspect of a marriage caused it to go awry, another party may not consider that aspect to have been a detriment whatsoever. In any event, the best course of action for any individual looking to file for divorce in Pennsylvania should involve retaining the services of an experienced Philadelphia divorce attorney who will fight for the best possible outcome.
