(Crain’s) — You love each other but concede the marriage is not working. Nobody’s fault, really. For couples wanting to get a divorce in New York, that’s a problem.
New York remains the last state in the country without a no-fault divorce law that allows couples to divorce quickly and without much legal expense.
Off and on since California became the first state to adopt no-fault divorce proceedings in 1969, New York legislators have made repeated, but unsuccessful attempts to simplify the state’s divorce laws.
