NYS still has grounds for divorce, adultery being one of them. However, it does not always have an impact on the division of assets. It's primarily used to get divorced before the 2 year separation needed for a no-fault divorce. Unless you can get your ex or one of his paramours to cooperate and swear to the adultery, it's very hard to make full-proof in court.

You might have your lawyer approach him about this if you have an idea that he wants the divorce as quickly as you do. They also use "Abandonment" a lot to get around the 2-year wait. And it's why the division of assets has less to do with "cause" than it used to. Judges know that, so if they have to make judgement on the settlement, they try not to take "fault" into account.

Are you are having trouble with your STBX on division of the assets? I don't see why he would try to claim half a house that is financially "upside-down". He's more likely to walk away rather than be stuck with half the debt.
