New York City divorce lawyers Ethan Steward and Martin Mohr release a new article (https://www.newyorkfamilylawgroup.com/) discussing the residency requirements for a New York divorce. The lawyers mentioned in the article that family law in New York can involve significant financial implications and tense family dynamics. It can be difficult for a person to navigate the complexities surrounding a divorce on their own.
“A divorce doesn’t just impact the couple but the whole family. If you have decided to divorce, you need to seek a skilled divorce attorney. Strict residency requirements must be met to get divorced in NY,” the article from the New York City divorce lawyers says.
Attorney Ethan Steward says that in order to get a divorce in New York, the marriage must have occurred in New York and that one spouse has lived in the state for a minimum of one year. If that is not the case, another residency requirement in New York states that the couple must have lived in New York as a married couple and that one spouse has lived in the state for a minimum of one year.
The lawyers add that a divorce can be possible if the grounds stated for the divorce have happened in the state of New York and that one spouse has lived in the state for a minimum of one year. It is also possible for a couple to be divorced in New York if both parties have lived in New York for at least two years.
In the article, attorney Steward says, “Divorce is stressful at its best and wholly devastating and overwhelming at its worst. Divorce and other family law matters can run from highly complicated and contentious to cooperative and amicable. What starts as one often can change during a divorce case and do a complete about-face.”
Lastly, the lawyer emphasizes the importance of having a skilled divorce attorney when dealing with matters such as divorce. A skilled lawyer may be able to help the parents understand their roles and responsibilities in the divorce and help them come to a favorable agreement.
