Reasons you may request a divorce in New York

When filing for divorce in New York, it's required that you state the grounds on which you're seeking to dissolve your marriage. You cannot mark down just any reason, but instead must choose one among seven different legally acceptable options that are allowable under Domestic Relations Law (DRL) §170.

Factors that impact whether you'll retain custody of your child

In determining which parent should be awarded custody, a judge's decision will center around what's in the best interest of the child. In doing so, he or she will look at a number of aspects of the parents' lives and their relationship with their child in hopes of making a decision that will best allow the child to live a happy and productive life.
