Yes, New York law protects your right to divorce whether or not you’re pregnant.
As a legal matter, there are several additional issues that women who are pregnant should expect to face, including demands for a paternity test and a hard fight over issues related to support – both spousal and child.
We’ve seen divorces during pregnancy turn into extremely vicious circumstances, often because the reason a pregnant spouse needs to leave is a history of violence in the home, or patterns of conduct that make her afraid of future violence.
These are complex and emotionally exhausting cases, and you deserve all the support and legal help you can get as you go through it.
