Irretrievable Breakdown is a relatively new ground for divorce in New York, authorized by the legislature only in 2010.
It allows no-fault divorce petitions, and under irretrievable breakdown, a spouse can unilaterally get a divorce, even without their spouse’s consent.
If you’ve spoken to an attorney who recommended irretrievable breakdown, consider the option strongly.
When you file on these grounds, it means that no one is presumed to be at fault, and no case needs to be made that your spouse was culpable in some way for the failure of the marriage.
For many spouses who both want out of a marriage that isn’t working, irretrievable breakdown provides a straightforward, cost effective, and relatively fast route to achieve it.
The attorneys at Zelenitz, Shapiro & D’Agostino can help you with an irretrievable breakdown divorce.
