Grounds for Divorce in New York

In the State of New York, you no longer need to prove fault to obtain a divorce. For spouses who have irreconcilable differences and no longer wish to be married a No-fault divorce based upon the irretrievable breakdown of the relationship per 6 months is utilized. In fact, over 98% of divorces are based upon a no-fault divorce. The remaining grounds are fault-based, meaning that one spouse has acted in a way that justifies divorce. These include:

  • Cruel and inhuman treatment — Verbal, physical or emotional abuse has occurred, making it unsafe for one spouse to live with the other.
  • Constructive abandonment — Physical abandonment, including sexual abandonment for one year or more.
  • Three consecutive years imprisonment — One spouse has been in jail for three or more years in a row, beginning after the marriage.
  • Adultery — One spouse has cheated on the other. This must be proven using evidence and a third party.
  • Separation — Living separate and apart pursuant to an agreement for one or more years.
  • No-fault divorce – DRL (Domestic Relations Law 170 (7), Irretrievable Breakdown of the relationship for at least six months.
