Divorce 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 part of the New York State Domestic Relations Law. A divorce can be granted on either fault or no fault grounds.
A spouse must prove certain facts to the Court to obtain a divorce on one of the fault grounds.
These grounds for divorce do not require the complaining party to prove any misconduct by his or her spouse.
The issues that are most often contested in divorce actions are property division, custodial rights, and spousal and child support. Contested divorces can be very stressful for the entire family. Our attorneys encourage clients to work with us to resolve all of these issues in a pragmatic manner that is also cost effective.
