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

Question #233:

I recently got married at the NYC city hall 2 weeks ago. We were a happy couple until we started talking about finances together. Basically, he refused to financially support me and called my parents to support me until I graduate my education. In this process, my husband's hatred towards me became overboard and became verbally abusive and threatening. We are not currently living together but I could not stop thinking about the chances of physical abuse if I were to be around him. I am scared to stay in this marriage. He also wanted to end this marriage. Should we go for annulment or divorce? Thank you.


Answer:


You do not appear to have sufficient grounds to seek an annulment or even a divorce in NYS.
You must wait a minimum of 6 months and then can file for a “ No Fault” divorce.
If there is any possibility of physical abuse, you should not put yourself in danger.
