Popularity of No-Fault Divorces
New York was the last state in the United States to recognize no-fault divorce. Since that time, no-fault divorce has become the most common way for couples to seek to dissolve their marriage.
No-Fault Divorce Law in Rochester
In 2010, New York State courts began to recognize “no-fault” divorce, the grounds for which were an “irretrievable breakdown” of the marriage. This term means that the parties experienced irreconcilable differences in their marriage for at least six months prior to filing for divorce. Couples are still permitted to file under fault-based grounds, but no-fault divorces are the more common option.
A no-fault divorce does not place blame on either party, so neither spouse may object. This eliminates time-consuming court time defending objections and proving fault.
A waiting period is no longer required before a final divorce decree for a no-fault divorce may be issued. All decisions pertaining to property division, financial issues, spousal maintenance, child custody, and child support must be settled prior to the final divorce decree.

Let me begin with my continued respect and heartfelt thanks for all you did for me when a simple divorce spiraled out of control. As wounded as I was, I was painfully aware of the emotional toll the litigation was taking on you too. It was that empathy, accompanied by your phenomenal legal skills that kept me together during what was perhaps the most traumatic chapter of my life. I hope I am able to convey an impression of the depth of gratitude I have for you.
I retained Tully Rinckey PLLC for a child support modification, which became necessary following domestic violence incidents, my own disability as a result, and my children's increased needs. Tully Rinckey PLLC is professional, proactive and, most importantly, does not suffer fools. They focused on the legal arguments of the case and applied appellate decisions which were directly related. Most importantly to me, they took my case personally. As one who has seen many people promised the sun, moon and stars by attorneys who then treat them as a number, Tully Rinckey PLLC was invested in my case from the beginning. They were able to go directly to the heart of the matter without needing to destroy the other party. They kept the focus on my children's needs and, when the other party refused to settle and hired an attorney, Tully Rinckey PLLC went into overdrive making sure my children would get a fair hearing of the facts in court. They kept the main thing the main thing and her arguments on point. They also ensured that my disability accommodations were honored and was sensitive to the needs my disability created, which was incredibly important for my testimony. I have already recommended Tully Rinckey PLLC several times and will continue to do so.
I was represented by Ryan McCall in both custody and support matters. Ryan did an excellent job in both, and we were successful in both. I would highly recommend to anyone in need of great representation to contact Tully Rinckey and speak to Ryan McCall.
Thank you it was a pleasure doing business with you. Honestly, you made this experience painless. Much appreciated happy customer.
I would like to thank you for the wonderful job Tully Rinckey PLLC did on my behalf. In an unusual circumstance where the custody of my daughter changed for a period of 6 months because of Hurricane Irene, they managed to get the entire case dismissed.
