Divorce in New York State − Grounds and Issues

There are several standard grounds for a divorce in New York State. These include:

  • Adultery
  • Cruel and inhuman treatment (abuse)
  • New York's New No Fault divorce
  • Abandonment − may be physical or constructive (lack of sexual relations for a year or more)
  • Living under a separation agreement for one year or more

In many cases, a separation agreement is the first step toward legally ending a marriage. In others, it might be initiating the negotiated divorce process. But sometimes there is too much conflict between you and your spouse to make negotiation the preferred path. We have the experience to use either litigation or negotiation, depending on your family's circumstances and your goals. Our goal will be the fair resolution of all outstanding issues, such as:

  • Marital property division
  • Child custody and visitation
  • Child support
  • Spousal support/maintenance/alimony

Talk with us and we will help you make the hard decisions. For more information about separation agreements, or to schedule an appointment to speak with a lawyer at our office in downtown Troy, contact us today.
