WHAT DOES IT TAKE TO GET A DIVORCE - JURISDICTION, GROUNDS

Question #52:
MY EX-HUSBAND AND I HAVE BEEN SEPERATED FOR 7 MONTHS NOW. GOT MARRIED ON DEC OF 1999. I SUPPORTED "US" FOR A YEAR AND A HALF WHILE HE CLAIMED TO BE LOOKING FOR A JOB. MY EX-HUSBAND HAD JOBS FOR APPROX 6 MONTHS ALTOGETHER. NO KIDS, NO JOINT PROPERTY OR FINANCES. UNFORTUNATELY, WE ARE NOT LEGALLY SEPARATED BY THE COURT. HE AND I WISHES TO DIVORCE AS SOON AS POSSIBLE. BUT MY RESEARCH TELLS ME THAT HE AND I HAVE TO BE LEGALLY SEPARATED FOR A YEAR IN ORDER FOR A DIVORCE. OUR SITUATION DOES NOT INCLUDE ANY OF THE SIX GROUNDS FOR DIVORCE. IT'S INCOMPATIBILITY, HOWEVER NEW YORK STATE DOES NOT RECOGNIZE THAT. I NEED SOME MORE INFORMATION AND THE BEST WAY TO GET A DIVORCE ASAP. MY EX AND I HAVE AGREED ON THE DIVORCE AND WISHES TO EXPEDITE IT. IT WILL BE AN UNCONTESTED DIVORCE. THANK YOU FOR YOUR TIME AND PATIENCE. I HOPE I WILL BE HEARING FROM YOU SOON.

You do not have to wait a year to get your divorce. We can do it much faster through mediation and will find an appropriate ground on which to file. If you are located in the NYC metro area, please call me at 212-370-1660 to arrange for all of us to meet to discuss mediating your divorce.
