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

Question #217:
I have been married six months and with my partner for a total of a year and 4 months. He just told me he doesn't want to have children, a discussion we had before we got married. We made a life plan that he is reneging on. Is this ground for an annulment. We were married in New York State, I'm American, he's Spanish. We live in Abu Dhabi. I want this to be cheap, quick and painless.

Thanks!


Answer:

You or your spouse must be a resident of NY state for a year before NY will have jurisdiction over your matter.
If you are living in Abu Dhabi you may qualify to apply for a divorceor annulment there.
