Are Grounds Required For Uncontested Divorces In Queens?

Yes, even if your divorce in Queens is uncontested, you’ll still have to file on the grounds allowed under New York law.

For most couples facing divorce, Irretrievable Breakdown is the preferred ground, and gives you the simplest and least expensive pathway to a divorce.

This is New York’s no-fault ground, and basically allows a spouse to file for divorce by stating that the marriage is irretrievably broken and has been for six months or longer.

No misconduct needs to be alleged, and no case needs to be built against your spouse.

Because this approach allows for unilateral divorce, your spouse can choose to be as involved as they want, or not at all, when you file.

An experienced Queens divorce attorney can help make sure that your petition is complete and constructed to pass muster with the court.
