While divorce is discouraged under Jewish law, a couple is permitted to part if there is excessive bitterness between them. A proper NY Jewish divorce is referred to as a get. A civil divorce alone is not sufficient under Jewish Law.
Mediation is an option for couples seeking a less adversarial and less costly process. Mediation has several benefits, which include cost savings, time savings, equivalent bargaining power between parties, and fewer disputes.
Collaborative law is an excellent tool for a non-litigious party who seeks to mediate but may feel that the bargaining power will be more equivalent should each party have their own representative to speak on his/her behalf.
New York will give full faith and credit to a foreign divorce in cases where both parties agree to the foreign divorce and participate in the process. In 1971, the Dominican Republic amended the laws regarding divorce so as to permit foreigners to obtain a divorce in ONE DAY without any residence requirement. Many Americans who are in need of a “one-day divorce” have utilized this exception to accomplish a fast divorce.
