In 2010, New York adopted a new no fault divorce law that was meant to protect lower income citizens who are divorcing who cannot afford an attorney from not getting fair entitlement. However, this law may be leading to the richer partner becoming a lower class citizen because of hefty deals that are wiping away their income. The judges were awarding alimony on a temporary basis while before the divorce proceedings were taking place. In addition, some spouses did not deserve the alimony that they were receiving during this time.
There are a host of legal association’s calling for the law’s appeal. Despite its fair intent, many legal professionals and divorcing spouses have said that the no fault divorce law is causing a steep toll and causing the playing filed to not be level. Supporters of the bill state that while there are problems to work out there have been many success stories that have resulted from this bill. They state that many cases that were successful have led to spouses with little income to get a fair amount from the spouse with the higher income.
