New York Uncontested Divorce Lawyer

Uncontested Divorce: The Simpler Way to End Your Marriage

In an uncontested divorce, both parties have, by themselves and without help from the court, worked out the important issues involved in their divorce – which may include property division, child custody, spousal support, and child support matters. Anyone has the right to file a divorce complaint without an attorney, but you should be aware that this may result in unforeseen legal ramifications. Seeking the advice of a divorce lawyer is always a wise choice, especially when your future is at stake.

Spousal Support, Pension Plans & Property Division

If you are asking for spousal support or a share of your spouse’s pension plan, it would be wise to seek the advice of an attorney. It is not uncommon for spouses to contest divorce settlements that include alimony or pension plans and, at this point, the divorce would no longer be uncontested. Hiring a lawyer and/or mediator to aid in the negotiation could help you reach a more favorable settlement.

If the issue is not resolved until the actual trial, the judge may have to make this decision for you. For this reason, self-representation may not be the best choice. When you consult a New York divorce attorney and/or mediator before proceeding with your divorce, you can ensure that important issues are not overlooked and that both parties are getting what they want out of the divorce.

Are You Unable to Locate Your Spouse?

If you are unable to locate your spouse when seeking a divorce, there are specific procedures for this situation. This happens more often than you might think, especially when spouses have been separated for long periods of time. Consulting an attorney is recommended, particularly because of the unique procedures that must take place for the final judgment for divorce to be approved by the court.
