Yes, you can get divorced in Brooklyn even if your spouse wants to stay married.
While your spouse has quite a bit of power to slow down the divorce if they choose to, ultimately the court will grant your petition under New York’s No Fault divorce grounds, implemented as part of a series of reforms in 2010.
Negotiating the terms of your divorce can be difficult when your spouse isn’t ready to give up on the marriage yet, but experienced divorce attorneys can help create an environment where all parties are heard, and various approaches are on the table to resolve outstanding problems.
We have the experience to help bring your spouse on board, making the divorce process much easier.
