What is No Fault Divorce in New York

  Legal Services

No-fault divorce in New York is a legal process that allows couples to end their marriage without assigning blame or proving wrongdoing by either party. Before its introduction in 2010, divorces in New York often required one spouse to demonstrate fault, such as adultery or cruelty, to obtain a divorce decree. No-fault divorce, however, eliminates the need for such accusations, making the process less contentious and more accessible.

To file for a no-fault divorce in New York, you must meet certain residency requirements and state that your marriage has "irretrievably broken down" for at least six months. This approach streamlines divorce proceedings, reduces the emotional toll on couples and their children, and encourages a more amicable separation.

No-fault divorce has become the preferred method for ending marriages in New York, offering a less confrontational path to dissolution and allowing couples to focus on moving forward with their lives.
