What Are The Grounds In A No-Fault Divorce In Queens?

New York’s no-fault ground is called Irretrievable Breakdown, and allows divorce in cases where one spouse attests that the marriage is irretrievably broken and has been for at least six months.

Prior to the creation of Irretrievable Breakdown as part of a package of reforms in 2010, divorce in New York always required a showing of fault, which incentivized widespread fraud on the part of good people who simply wanted out of bad marriages.

Under Irretrievable Breakdown, divorce is usually faster, less expensive, and easier on both parties than it was when fault had to be proven.

The attorneys at Zelenitz, Shapiro & D’Agostino know that when a marriage is over, it doesn’t have to mean war between the spouses.
