Becky Caruso, Attorney At Law
I am a Binghamton Lawyer serving the needs of my community for over 25 years. My office concentrates in Divorce Law and Family Law. I provide representation in Binghamton, New York including the surrounding cities of Endicott, Johnson City, Vestal and Owego, including Broome, Tioga, Chenango, Chemung, Cortland and Delaware Counties.
Both spouses currently live in New York AND the cause of the divorce happened in New York;
At least one spouse has lived in New York for the past two years;
At least one spouse has lived in New York for the past year AND the couple was married in New York;
At least one spouse has lived in New York for the past year AND the couple lived in New York while married; or

To meet the New York Divorce Residency Requirements, you must meet at least one of these residency requirements:
Grounds For Divorce
If you do not wish to allege grounds for a divorce, you may choose a No Fault Divorce.
If you wish to allege grounds for a divorce they are as follows:
Cruel and Inhuman Treatment (which can include adultery);
Abandonment for at least one year;
Living apart pursuant to a Separation Agreement for at least one year.
Living apart pursuant to a judgment of separation for at least one year.
Confinement in prison.
Irretrievable breakdown in relationship. (No Fault)
If you have a Mutual Consent-Uncontested Divorce, I will obtain your divorce for a Flat Rate Fee. A Mutual Consent-Uncontested Divorce means that both you and your spouse both agree to dissolve your marriage and there are either no issues involved in the divorce or you both agree on any issues involved such as; property distribution, debt allocation, spousal maintenance, retirements, child custody or child support.
I also prepare Divorce or Separation Agreements and Prenuptial and Postnuptial Agreements for a Flat Rate Fee.
For the Flat Rate Fee to apply, you and your spouse must be in complete agreement concerning the issues involved. If you need me to negotiate the terms of the agreement, a different rate applies.
