The appellate division in the first department recently ruled in Gross v. Gross that in order to be granted a divorce based on the grounds of cruel treatment in New York, a divorce litigant must have substantial proof. That means, a lawyer must come to trial prepared and have evidence to submit to the Court. Otherwise, you are just wasting your time. Read this recent case and you will be amazed at how tough it is to get divorced in New York
