News about proposals to change New York's divorce grounds law, including mutual consent requirements and waiting periods. This blog focuses on the issue of the availability and grounds of divorce, and policy proposals that aim to reduce divorce. It does not deal with financial and child-related issues in divorce law.
I am a long-time family-law and estate-planning lawyer who believes in improving divorce, but more importantly, preventing it. I am for: the traditional family, non-traditional families, joint custody, child support, alimony, collaborative divorce, mediation, and marriage skills training. I am against: divorce, one-parent families, domestic violence, child abduction, alienation, patriarchy, matriarchy, and selfish, immature parenting. Contradictory? That’s what makes family law so interesting.
