As an experienced New York Divorce Lawyer, I often speak to clients about grounds for divorce.
- New York has been a no-fault divorce state since 2010.
- Either spouse may obtain a divorce, whether or not the other spouse consents. There is no right to a hearing or appeal.
- Prior to 2010, a non-consenting spouse could create roadblocks to finalizing the divorce.
- If assets were held in the name of the non-consenting spouse, they could be used to prevent the divorce-seeking spouse from obtaining a fair share of marital assets.
