As of 2010, New York has introduced no-fault divorce, which allows for one party of the marriage to claim an “irretrievable breakdown of the marriage” for a period of at least six months to commence an action for divorce. Separation agreements as a grounds for divorce, therefore, is not required, or encouraged, as of 2010. However, separation agreements may still be entered into by spouses, and the agreement includes the terms of the separation, usually the means in which the more-monied spouse will support the less-monied spouse.
