On October 15, 2010, the state of New York passed a law that no longer requires parties to prove fault for divorce. Today, it is only necessary to show an “irretrievable breakdown of the marriage” for more than 6 months. To get a divorce in New York, individuals may now be able to get a divorce simply due to incompatibility.
It is important to remember that you can still get divorced in New York under previous grounds (such as abandonment, infidelity, imprisonment or cruel and inhuman treatment). However it is not necessary to show fault in order to get a divorce and fault does not affect the distributions of marital assets in any way.
