Divorces can always be obtained without "consent." But, the process may require a motion with the Court.

You can obtain a divorce in New York without your spouse's signature. However, in order to obtain a divorce, the law requires that you serve a Summons and Complaint on your spouse. If your spouse does not respond to the documents within the specified period of time (20 or 30 days), then the nonresponse will be considered a default. This is what is referred to as a No Signature Required Divorce.
