No Fault Divorce

Since 2010, no-fault divorce has been an option for unhappy couples in the Binghamton area looking to end their marriage without having to drag a spouse through the mud. Before the introduction of no-fault divorce in New York State, a spouse had to cite certain grounds, such as adultery, abandonment or cruel and inhumane treatment, for a court to issue a divorce decree. But now, to get a no-fault divorce, all a spouse has to cite is a six-month irretrievable breakdown of the marriage that preceded the divorce filing.

Call 607-722-1520 or email to schedule your FREE consultation with Binghamton Managing Partner Peter P. Charnetsky, Esq.

New York’s adoption of the no-fault divorce option means couples no longer have to air their dirty laundry for the sake of satisfying a requirement to place a spouse at fault for the marriage’s end. Consequently, a no-fault divorce saves spouses from much of the finger pointing and mudslinging commonly associated with divorces based on grounds.

However, that does not mean no-fault divorces are always easy and should be pursued without the help of an experienced Binghamton no-fault divorce attorney. Before a court can issue a divorce decree, issues such as the division of income and liabilities, child custody, visitation, and child support must be resolved. Call Tully Rinckey PLLC today at 607-722-1520 or e-mail to schedule a FREE initial consultation with an experienced no-fault divorce lawyer.
