Fault and No-Fault Divorce

In New York, couples may seek a divorce on fault or no-fault grounds. The grounds for a fault-based divorce include actual and constructive abandonment and cruel and inhuman treatment, where domestic violence occurs. However, divorces can also be no-fault divorces, which means that neither party is said to be at fault, but rather, it is claimed that there was an irretrievable breakdown in the marital relationship for at least six months prior to filing divorce papers.

Generally, the cause of the divorce will not affect other decisions made during a divorce. Regardless of whether a divorce is grounded on fault or no-fault, the decisions regarding custody and visitation, property division and support are not affected, unless there are concerns about domestic violence.
