New York was the last state in the nation to adopt a no-fault divorce law. Prior to a couple of days ago, you would have to prove fault grounds to get a divorce.
In other words, you used to have to accuse your spouse of abandonment, sexual abandonment, adultery, or cruel and inhuman treatment to be granted a divorce. We have emerged from the dark ages. Better late than never.
Now all you have to state is that your marriage has irretrievably broken down for six months and the court will grant you a no-fault divorce.
