Since the advent of New York’s no-fault divorce ground in 2010, Irretrievable Breakdown has become the most most common way that people get divorced in Brooklyn, and for good reason.
Under the old regime of divorce laws, people had to prove their allegations of things like adultery at a level comparable to preparing a criminal case, and the costs and thresholds of evidence were high.
With no-fault, the costs of divorce fell dramatically, and a person can get divorced even when their spouse objects. This approach has changed the importance of grounds, and these days alleging adultery won’t result in a different outcome to your divorce.
For this reason, your attorney will likely advise against trying to make changes like this.
Even if the court allows it, all it will do is increase the burden on you, and won’t significantly change the ultimate settlement in your divorce.
At Zelenitz, Shapiro & D’Agostino, we work with our clients to make sure that they get the most important things out of their divorce – financial stability in the aftermath, and a clean slate from which to move forward.
