Filing for Divorce in New York

At our firm, the Law Offices of Donald Mastrodomenico, P.C., we have over 100 years of combined experience of experience in divorce and related family law matters. Our years of experience allow us to provide superior service to each person we represent. We are familiar with appearing in all courts in the area, and the judges who make decisions in these critical issues. Close to 50% of divorces are rejected by the court due to a failure by an attorney to properly file paperwork.

We are professionals that are highly respected in the field of family law, and you can be confident that every detail of your case, including all filings, will be correct and submitted with all of the required documentation. Even matrimonial judges have retained the services of our firm for divorce – a real testament to our skills and legal abilities. Our firm provides counsel for both uncontested and contested divorce, as well as a range of other family law matters.

New York Grounds for Divorce

Before 2010, New York only offered fault-based grounds for divorce. But in 2010, they joined the rest of the states and included a no-fault divorce option.

New York’s no-fault divorce option falls under the ground that states that a couple can get a divorce if there is an irretrievable breakdown in the marriage for a period of 6 or more months.

There are also fault-based divorce grounds still available in New York, which are:

  • Cruel treatment
  • Desertion
  • Imprisonment
  • Proven adultery
  • Separation agreement and separate living for one year
  • “Judgment of Separation” and separate living for one year

A no-fault divorce is the most commonly used because it’s usually a simpler and faster process. Contact our firm to discuss the best option for you.

We are different from the rest.

We are the only firm that offers a flat fee schedule for contested divorces. Other firms charge for every court appearance, and every hour or a portion of an hour spent working on your case. When you retain our services, you will know what to expect and won't be facing the shock of huge, unanticipated legal bills. When we take on a case, you will know what to expect with regard to cost, an advantage that no other firm in the area offers.

Any contested divorce will have several difficult and crucial matters to resolve. The resolution of these matters will be decided, in large part, by the skills with which your divorce lawyer uses to manage the situation. Negotiations that have fallen off the rails can be gotten back on track.

When a trial can be avoided, we work hard to get your divorce resolved. We are familiar with a large number of the attorneys in the area and know them personally, allowing for negotiations to go more smoothly. When the other party absolutely refuses to compromise, or continues to make unreasonable demands, a trial cannot be avoided.

In these cases, you need to know that you have the most qualified, experienced and professional divorce litigator working with you. We have gained a reputation throughout the legal community for our excellent legal work and we are available to speak with you to discuss your divorce.
