Matrimonial & Family LawAppellate PracticeDivorce on Ground of Abandonment Denied

McCarthy Fingar’s lawyers are leaders in the legal community, and our Matrimonial & Family Law lawyers have been strong proponents of no-fault divorce. In fact, Judge Sondra M. Miller was an influential voice in the passage, in 2010, of the new no-fault divorce law. In Molloy, Dolores Gebhardt’s client was denied a divorce on the ground of abandonment. The decision became the basis for Dolores Gebhardt’s article on the law of abandonment entitled, “Justice Abandoned: Forty Years of Stalemate in Actions for Divorce on the Ground of Abandonment” 27 Pace Law Review 605 (2007).
