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

Question #121:

2 years ago I filed for divorce in New York for actual abandonment and cruel & inhuman treatment, but before the divorce went through (it was written up and filed officially with the county) my husband decided he wanted to come back and work on the marriage. I took him back and dropped the divorce. 2 years later things are not much better and possibly considering again. Can I file again under the same grounds? Or is he the one who has to file now?

Answer:


If the grounds are true, meaning he has abandoned the household or he is acting
in a way that would satisfy the criteria for "cruel and inhuman treatment", you would be
able to file again.
If you are living in the NYC metro area, I strongly urge you call me at 212-370-1660 to arrange for
a meeting to discuss mediating your divorce.
