New York State on Track to Adopt No-Fault Divorce

As you may have heard, New York is finally on course to adopt no-fault divorce.  Legislation is pending in the New York State Legislature that would allow couples to separate by providing mutual consent.  Under current law, even if both spouses agree to a divorce, one spouse must prove that the other is at fault by alleging a ground — a legal reason — for the divorce.  New York is the only state that still hasn’t adopted some form of no-fault divorce.  Overhaul is long overdue.  For a recent article about the status of the legislation, click here.
