New York Grounds for Divorce

If you want to file for divorce in New York, there are two requirements that you have to meet. First, you have to meet a residency requirement. Second, you must have grounds for filing for divorce.
The residency requirement stipulates that:

  • You can file for divorce if either you or your spouse lived in New York for at least two years
  • You can file for divorce if you or your spouse lived in New York for one year and you got married in the state of New York, or lived in New York as a couple, or if the grounds for divorce occurred in New York
  • You can file for divorce if you and your spouse are both residents of New York and the grounds for your divorce occurred in New York

Grounds for divorce in New York include:

Abandonment, Adultery, Cruel and Inhuman Treatment, or Imprisonment: If you file for divorce on any of these grounds, you will be required to provide proof of such treatment or behavior to the court.

Irretrievable Breakdown: Before you can file on the grounds of irretrievable breakdown, all of your financial affairs need to be in order and your relationship with your spouse must have been irretrievably broken for at least six months.

Separation: Before you can file on the grounds of separation, you and your spouse must have lived separately for at least one year and you must have filed a separation agreement.
