As of October 12, 2010, married couples in in the state of New York may now file for divorce on a no-fault basis, a long overdue change that finally offers spouses a way to end their marriage without resorting to false accusations or long waiting periods under a separation agreement. A spouse may now file for no-fault divorce on the grounds that the marriage has been irretrievably broken for at least 6 months; you do not have to find a way to prove that the breakdown of the relationship is your spouse’s fault, which helps avoid some unnecessary contention. Changes were also made in regard to temporary maintenance, child support modifications and the payment of attorney fees in a divorce.
