I Haven’t Seen My Spouse In More Than 10 Years. Do We Need A Formal Divorce In Brooklyn, Or Are We Common Law Divorced?

Even if you haven’t seen your spouse in ten years or more, you’re still married under New York law.

There is no “common law” divorce, and unless you received a Judgment of Divorce, you and your spouse are still married.

However long you’ve been apart, it usually happens that one party will want to remarry, or another life event will make divorce necessary.

Typically, when spouses have been out of contact for extended periods of time, the divorce process is a relatively simple uncontested action.

In some cases, you may be fine handling it on your own, but if there are any question marks at all, you should talk to a Brooklyn divorce lawyer to make sure your bases are covered.

The attorneys at Zelenitz, Shapiro & D’Agostino can help you anticipate the next step and act appropriately.
