Getting a divorce under New York law has become an easier process than previous years. This is due to the fact New York has passed a law permitting no-fault divorce, meaning that a couple need not prove any instances of wrongdoing or abuse in order to file for divorce in a court of law. In New York, spouses are allowed to terminate their marriages within a period of six months after declaring that their marriage is “irretrievably” broken down. New York is the last state to adopt this stance, which officially makes the U.S. a “no-fault divorce nation”. This is one of the rare instances in which all 50 states show some sort of uniformity on an issue.
