Every family is unique, and an experienced New York Family Law attorney can help you find solutions as your family changes. Currently, about one out of every two marriages in the United States ends in divorce. To get the process started, you must state your reason, or grounds, in a divorce complaint or petition. Since 2010, all 50 states recognize “no-fault” divorce grounds, so you simply declare that your marriage is over.

Divorce and Separation actions in New York State are heard and decided by the New York State Supreme Court. The legal grounds (or reasons) for a divorce are set forth in the New York State Domestic Relations Law. A divorce may be granted on either fault or no-fault grounds.

The law surrounding grounds for divorce is complicated. Plus, the facts of each case are unique. Getting a divorce can be complicated with many factors to consider, but we can help you come up with a plan that works best for you. Perlmutter Law Firm helps individuals throughout New York find workable solutions to their family disputes. Contact us to schedule a consultation today.
