Does New York Have Grounds for Divorce?
In our state, we do not specific that you must have grounds for divorce before you can file your case. The basic definition of “grounds for divorce,” simply refers to the reason that the marriage has ended. You would only need to state that the marriage has broken down to the point where you and your spouse absolutely can no longer continue on as a married couple.
The only other requirement to file for divorce is that you or your spouse must have been New York State residents for two years. This residency requirement can also be fulfilled if you were living continuously in the state, your marriage took place in the state, and you have been living together as a couple. Or, you can fulfill the requirement if you were both residents on the same day your divorce was filed and the marriage’s breakdown occurred while you were in the state.
