Does It Matter Which Spouse Files First For A Divorce? - New York Law

Roberta Feldman talks to us about filing for divorce

Roberta K. Feldman 0 7808 Article rating: 4.4
I am often asked does it matter which spouse files first for a divorce?  And the answer is very simply No. We have no-fault divorce in New York and if your spouse serves you first, you have the opportunity to file a counter-claim and in that counter-claim, you ask for the relief that you are seeking and with the help of your attorney, I would advise you to always file that counter-claim. It provides protection in the event that for some reason your spouse decides to withdraw the action, you can still go forward if that is what you want.
