Can My Spouse Stop The Divorce Once I’ve Filed In Brooklyn?

Your spouse, if they are so motivated, has the capacity to slow your divorce to an agonizing crawl, but cannot stop the divorce outright.

At the end of the day, you cannot be forced to stay in a marriage that you no longer want to be in, and even if they delay the process, you will eventually be divorced.

These days, the most common ground people file for divorce on is called Irretrievable Breakdown, which is New York’s version of no-fault divorce.

Instead of showing that your spouse engaged in misconduct (proving fault), Irretrievable Breakdown lets you simply state that your marriage has been irretrievably broken for at least six months, and you can be divorced with or without your spouse’s input.

When it looks like negotiations will be difficult or your spouse will do everything they can to make the divorce as hard as possible, get experienced legal help to speed things along.

The attorneys at Zelenitz, Shapiro & D’Agostino can help you.
