“Fault” and “No-Fault” Divorce in New York
In New York, a couple may file for divorce under “fault” or
In order to establish “fault” in a divorce, the filing spouse
must be able to show one of the following:
- Abandonment for at least one year
- Incarceration for at least three consecutive years
- Cruel and inhuman treatment (such as mental or physical abuse)
“No-fault” divorce means that neither spouse is holding the
other responsible for the divorce. Rather, a couple only has to show that
their marriage has been irretrievably broken for six months or more.
In addition to grounds for divorce, a divorce is also characterized by
how willing a couple is to agree to its terms. Thus, divorces can be either “uncontested” or “contested.” In either case, it is a good idea to speak with a New York divorce
lawyer to hammer out the divorce terms as efficiently as possible. In
many cases, divorce mediation is an effective way to try to come up with
solutions in a cooperative and amicable manner. Lois M. Brenner, Esq.
has more than 35 years of divorce mediation experience and can bring compassion
and understanding to your case. Call today to learn more about our mediation

Uncontested vs. Contested Divorce
In an uncontested divorce, both spouses agree to all issues concerning
the dissolution of their marriage, including property division, child
custody and support, alimony, visitation rights, etc. Uncontested divorces
can be resolved outside of court. On the other hand, when spouses cannot
agree on the terms of their divorce, their divorce will be considered
contested and will need to be resolved by a judge.

significant implications for their future, it is of utmost importance

York divorce law. Whether your divorce is uncontested or contested, Lois
