As discussed at length in a previous post ("Is No-Fault Divorce a Good Thing? It may soon be the law in all 50 states."), pending legislation in New York would create a no-fault divorce statute in that state. Until recently, New York was the last state which still did not have a no-fault divorce option (without a significant waiting period).
The signing of the new law by Governor David Paterson has now brought New York up to date with the status of divorce law in the other 49 states. To read more about the new New York law read "No-Fault Divorce Signed into Law in New York" which also contains the text of the law.
Review our previous post for discussion of the many benefits of no-fault divorce.
