Can My Wife Divorce Me If She Just Found Out She’s Pregnant?

Yes, New York has no prohibition on divorce by pregnant women, so your wife is able to file for divorce even if she’s just found out she’s pregnant.

What you need to do in this case is protect your financial future by talking to an experienced divorce attorney right away.

You’ll want an attorney who can effectively argue for paternity testing, because if the child your wife is carrying isn’t yours, you shouldn’t have to pay child support for the next two decades.

From your future earnings to your ability to move on cleanly into a new relationship down the road, you need the best representation you can have.
