Grounds for Divorce
In New York, there are five grounds for divorce:
- Cruel and inhuman treatment
- Conversion of separation agreement/judgment
Regardless of the grounds involved, divorces come in two forms: contested and uncontested. In a contested divorce, resolutions to disputes are put in the hands of the courts. In an uncontested divorce, the divorcing parties will work together to agree upon a resolution.
All Matters Related to Divorce
