Question #163

 I was married in the State of NY 10 years ago. After three years of marriage and one child, my husband and I amicably filed for a legal separation. My question:
⦁ Is it true that after seven-year following the legal separation, you are automatically considered divorced? 

There are no automatic divorces in the State of New York. If you filed a legal separation

In New York and it was drafted properly, you can use the separation as the grounds upon which you base your complaint and do not have to prove other grounds. However, you must file for divorce, including all the documents necessary for such filing.

If you are living in the New York City metropolitan area, please contact me at 212-370-1660 to discuss the matter at greater length.
