In order to obtain a divorce in the state of New York, you or your spouse must be a New York resident. When you work with my firm, I will discuss in detail the residency requirements and help you determine a ground for filing divorce. The state recognizes seven different grounds for divorce, including:

  • Separation agreements
  • Judgment agreements
  • Cruel and inhumane treatment
  • Irretrievable breakdown
  • Abandonment
  • Adultery
  • Imprisonment

When you retain my services, I will fully review your case and help you decide with situation best fits your and your spouse's separation. I can also assist you with completing and filing a divorce petition and determining which court is appropriate for you to file with based on your residency. We will also review all areas of the divorce decree, including alimony, child custody, child support and visitation.
