Can My Spouse Prevent Me From Getting A No-Fault Divorce In Queens?

No, while most of the other grounds for divorce in New York have burdens of proof that you must build a case to meet, and which can be denied, a divorce filed under Irretrievable Breakdown has no such burden.

You must only attest that your marriage has been irretrievably broken for a period of six months or more, and your suit can move forward.

Just because your spouse can’t build a case to have the divorce denied doesn’t mean that they can’t slow the process down, though.

A particularly intransigent spouse can create numerous obstacles on the way to a divorce decree, which is a big reason to work with experienced Queens divorce lawyers in your case.

At Zelenitz, Shapiro & D’Agostino, we work hard to see that our clients get the fastest, most affordable divorce possible – and do our utmost to keep your spouse from slowing things a crawl.
