Divorce: An Overview

Divorce is not only one of the toughest decisions to make, but it can be one the most stressful time in one’s life. It not only changes a family’s dynamic emotionally and economically, but it can be a very complicated process, even if the split is an amicable one. Divorce in the Bronx, Manahattan or anyhwhere else  is difficult.  In some cases, the dispute over child custody, division of assets, alimony, and child support can create feelings of anger and resentment for one or both parties involved.

In New York State, you or your spouse must be a New York resident for a continuous period of at least 1 year prior to filing. If residency requirements are met, then the state recognizes these seven grounds for divorce:

• Abandonment
• Adultery
• Cruel and inhumane treatment
• Imprisonment
• Irretrievable breakdown
• Judgment agreements
• Separation agreements
