Over the last 30 years, divorce has become more common. This might not seem like good news, but if you are considering divorce, the number of options available to divorcing couples has grown. In New York State you have the option to file for divorce yourself, hire a traditional divorce attorney, or pursue one of the options known as Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR).
