Top 100 LawyersFiling for divorce is never easy. You will be separating much more than your marital relationship. You will have to divide your home, assets, and debts with your current spouse. If you have children, then even your parental relationship will be divided into visitation hours or the terms of a child custody arrangement. These crucial decisions might even be made by a judge on your behalf.

Before You File for Divorce in NY

If you have decided to divorce in New York State, you are no longer required to state the grounds for your divorce, which was true just a few years ago. However, you and/or your spouse must still meet residency requirements before you file for divorce in Long Island or anywhere else in New York.

To meet New York’s residency requirements, you must fulfill one of these:

  • You married in New York and one spouse lived here for at least one year before filing
  • You lived as a married couple in New York and one spouse has lived in the state for at least one year before filing for divorce
  • At least one spouse has lived in New York for a minimum of two years before filing

Not sure if you meet these requirements? Discuss your case today - (631) 777-7200!
