How long you wait to file for divorce, and whether you choose to take steps to try to heal your marriage, are generally up to you.
Under New York’s no-fault ground, you’ll need to attest that your marriage has been irretrievably broken for a period of at least six months, so that should be the only time period you’d need to consider.
In many cases involving adultery, both spouses would likely acknowledge that the marriage had broken down prior to an affair.
In other cases, your spouse’s adultery may come out of the blue, but an ongoing affair may represents proof of an irretrievable breakdown.
The attorneys at Zelenitz, Shapiro & D’Agostino are some of the most experienced divorce attorneys in Queens, and we can help you get the closure you need when your spouse has thrown your life together away.
