In the past, New York law presented a variety of barriers to divorce, including requiring a substantial body of evidence to prove an allegation like adultery.
Today, those barriers have been reformed, and a person who catches their spouse cheating can obtain a divorce using the Irretrievable Breakdown ground.
This is New York’s version of no-fault divorce, and judges in Buffalo only need a sworn statement from you that your marriage is irretrievably broken and has been for at least six months.
Under those circumstances, your divorce can move forward even if you can’t meet the high bar to proving adultery, and even if your spouse objects to the divorce.
At Friedman & Ranzenhofer, we help clients get the most favorable results in their divorces, especially when a spouse has been caught cheating.
