Do we need a traditional divorce and if so how do we go about this? It would be uncontested.

Q: Same sex marriage in Canada in 2008, never let home state of NY know we were married. Meaning we never filed a marriage certificate with the courts. Ny was not recognizing same sex marriages at that time (I dont think)

A: David’s Answer: It doesn’t matter where in the world you were married, it only matters that you’re currently a NY resident (& have been for at least 2 years) and that NY now recognizes the marriage (which it does). Thus, you can proceed to file the uncontested divorce in the county where you reside. Call a Putnum/Westchester Unconetsted Divorce attorney to schedule a consult for more info. – David Bliven, Westchester Divorce Attorney.
