Is there No Fault Divorce in New York

New York State allows for "No Fault Divorce," which means that spouses can seek a divorce without having to prove that one party is at fault for the marriage breakdown. Instead, they can cite "irreconcilable differences" or the irretrievable breakdown of the marriage for a period of at least six months. This option provides a less contentious and more amicable approach to divorce proceedings. However, couples still need to resolve issues like child custody, support, and property division.
