Getting a Divorce in New York – Get Help
In New York City, you can get a divorce if the relationship is “irretrievably broken” and has been for some time. Some jurisdictions call this a “no-fault” divorce. If you and your spouse agree that the relationship is in such a state, the two of you can come to an agreement on the major issues like support and the division of property. While this may seem like the simple path, whatever you agree upon has to have the judge’s approval so that the court may enforce the agreement. You will need an experienced divorce attorney to help you through the process.
