New York No Fault Divorce Law… When?

The New York Times has published letters from readers responding to it recent scathing editorial regarding New York state’s refusal to enact no fault divorce laws.  New York is the only state that requires you to prove the fault of your spouse to legally justify your divorce.

A number of readers wrote in regarding New York’s old-school divorce stance, just adding fuel to the already hot topic.  As a NY divorce attorney, I fully agree with all of the readers comments and believe that NY should change its divorce laws.  Moreover, New York is being challenged to make that change quickly.

    No-fault laws are the result of lawyers and judges trying to change the way divorces played out in court. They were tired of dealing with feuding couples who were resorting to facts being distorted, lies being told and time being spent trying to figure out who had done what to who. In their minds, the old fault system of divorce was a threat to the integrity of the family court system and changes needed to be made.

    In the end, the couple that separates due to a separation agreement, and then sues for a no-fault divorce based on their compliance with the agreement, does get a “no-fault” divorce. That is, they can get a divorce without either having to prove that the other caused the marriage to fail in a specifically recognized way. But they still have to wait for a year, and be able to reach agreement on all rights and responsibilities flowing from the divorce. And that means New York no-fault divorce, while it technically exists, is nonetheless stricter than in most other states.
