Grounds for Divorce in New York
In order to obtain a divorce in the state of New York, you or your spouse
must be a New York resident for at least 6 months before filing a petition
for divorce. It's important to have any attorney to walk you through
this process. The laws and regulations governing family law and divorce

alone can be intimidating. Working with the right attorney can make all
the difference in the outcome of your case. When you work with my firm,
