My Spouse Has Religious Objections And Won’t Consent To A Divorce In Queens. What Do I Do?

While your spouse’s religious objections are likely sincere and worthy of deep consideration, if you have reached a point where you can no longer be in the marriage, those objections can’t keep you from divorcing your spouse.

In New York, you can get a divorce even if your spouse objects, and even if they choose not to participate in the divorce.

No one can force you to stay married against your will, and if your marriage has broken down and is beyond repair, you have the right to a legal process that dissolves the marriage.

If you aren’t sure how or whether your spouse will respond to your divorce filing, you should work with a Queens divorce lawyer to ensure that you are protected from any circumstance.

Depending on the particulars of your marriage and your divorce petition, your spouse may decide not to participate at all.

This is probably the easiest way to achieve a divorce in New York.

On the other hand, they may do everything possible to impede the process in an effort to delay the inevitable.

The attorneys at Zelenitz, Shapiro & D’Agostino can help you get what you need in your divorce.
