“Sure…but what if it’s complicated?”
Yes, divorces can be messy. Maybe your spouse is dragging their feet, refusing a straight forward divorce? Maybe you can’t locate them? Or you’re at odds over terms?
It happens. So let’s start with your grounds for divorce.
If you can’t agree on Irreconcilable Differences, New York State law gives you other grounds like Abandonment, Lockout, and Mental or Physical Cruelty.
With proper grounds, you can divorce your spouse without their consent or signature – you just need to know their location, so papers can be served.
And if you don’t know their whereabouts, we work with agencies who can locate them for you.
It only gets tough when your spouse fights you over terms.
You both want custody of the kids. You can’t agree visitation. Or one of you makes big demands when it comes to money. That’s going to hurt.
That’s when some couples bring in a mediator, to find a resolution.
If you’re ready to discuss your divorce, contact us for more information.
When we file your uncontested divorce, the court will accept your grounds and documents. That’s a promise we make to every client.
Just one reason why the Better Business Bureau gives us an A+ rating.

Some Frequently Asked Questions
If you can’t agree to divorce for Irreconcilable Differences, a New York Court will need specific grounds – such as:
- Abandonment: your spouse walked out at least one year ago, and you have not lived together since.
- Lockout: your spouse forced you out of the house at least one year ago, and has refused to let you back in.
- Sexual Abandonment: your spouse has denied you sexual relations for at least one year.
- Mental or Physical Cruelty: you can cite at least three acts of cruelty in the last five years – for example, threats, acts of violence or sexual abuse.
No. The Divorce Center has a team of highly trained paralegals who can take care of everything. We’ll type your divorce papers according to your instructions, then file documents with the court and see it through to your final decree. You don’t need to go to the expense of hiring a lawyer.
Yes. New York State law allows you to formally separate if you’re not ready for full divorce proceedings. A Separation Agreement can address most of the issues you’d cover in a divorce settlement, like child custody, visitation and support – as well as distribution of assets.
The separation agreement must be filed with the County Clerk, in the county where either spouse is currently living. Then one year on, either spouse is free to petition for divorce, citing Irreconcilable Differences.
Just keep in mind, you stay legally married under the terms of a Separation Agreement. So if you’re looking to remarry, it is not a substitute for divorce.
No – your spouse must be notified, but you can serve them divorce papers without their signature.
You can file for divorce in New York if:
- You were married in the state and you’ve personally lived here for the last year; or
- You were married elsewhere, and you’ve personally lived here for the last two years.
You will need to know where you spouse is living, or how to contact them through work. But it doesn’t matter if they’re in a different state, a different country, or in the US military – we can still process your divorce within 3-5 months.
