Albany, NY – On August 15, 2010 the New York State Legislature passed a landmark law making New York the 50th and final state to allow “no fault” divorces. The law went into effect on October 13, 2010, giving relief to countless couples that have been waiting to get divorced but simply did not want to make things contentious.
In honor of the new New York no fault divorce law that went into effect just weeks ago, The Rosenblum Law Firm, P.C., a statewide firm that handles New York divorces, is now offering free no-risk consultations to those interested in getting divorced under the new law. “The new law allows a couple to split without forcing one party to take the blame for terrible things like cruel and unusual punishment, abandonment or adultery,” says managing attorney Adam H. Rosenblum, Esq. “this ends the finger pointing and allows for ‘divorce with dignity,’ says Rosenblum.
State Assemblyman Jonathan Bing, one of the sponsors of the bill, says people had told him they’d gone as far as moving out of New York State just to get a no-fault divorce elsewhere. The new law allows people to stay put and end their marriages peacefully.
Rosenblum says that if you are looking for assistance with your New York divorce, wherever in New York State you may live, his firm can help point you in the right direction. New York matrimonial and child custody laws are very complex and in almost all cases it is worthwhile to consult with an attorney with experience, regardless of whether or not you have a significant amount of assets or children. “Part of navigating the choppy waters of a New York no fault divorce means making sure all of the correct procedures are followed, including filling out the appropriate paperwork and making sure it is filed correctly.” says Rosenblum. “Even one incorrectly completed form can be fatal to the action for divorce and the judge can either deny you the divorce or delay it significantly,” Rosenblum said.
The Rosenblum Law Firm handles New York divorces statewide and is based in Albany.
