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.

    “An Amazing Experience from Start to Finish!”
    Lois was an absolute pleasure to work with. She worked on a prenuptial agreement for me. Our very first conversation put me at ease. She was interested in my upcoming marriage and wedding. She assured me the prenuptial agreement could be drafted quickly. She made intelligent recommendations to address some of my complex financial decisions. She also made sound suggestions to protect my multi-million dollar portfolio. Our wedding is coming up and will be a lot smaller than we originally thought due to COVID-19, but Lois Brenner got our prenuptial agreement done in time, and made it a lot more pleasurable experience than I thought it would be. I would recommend Lois to anyone seeking a truly skilled attorney to draft their prenuptial agreement.

    “I would strongly recommend her as a divorce /representative attorney.”
    I utilized Lois's services for divorce. She was most helpful in all aspects. First, she explored reconciliation, which was the right thing to do. Absence of that, her suggestion of what to negotiate for, how to do it without unnecessary anger & hostility to the ex & how to expedite the process was invaluable. Timewise she was excellent & sympathetic to what I was going through. She was always available & her fees were very reasonable. I would strongly recommend her as a divorce /representative attorney.
    “Lois is a "Rock Star"”
    Lois is a “Rock Star” I was very worried about my daughter who was in a really bad marriage. I started researching divorce attorneys and found Lois Brenner. I called her, discussed my daughter’s horrible marriage and she agreed to meet with us. Since my daughter’s husband wanted out of the marriage too (he was cheating), Lois suggested she help them dissolve their marriage in mediation. To my surprise it worked out. Lois was able to keep my daughter and husband from fighting during their sessions, and she helped them resolve all their financial issues. Since I was paying the fees to help my daughter, not having to go to court saved us a great deal of money. As a father, I am truly grateful for everything Lois did. Her talks with me in the beginning of the process, to calm me down, really helped. I would highly recommend her to anyone thinking of divorce.

    “They are smart, tough and highly experienced.”
    Lois Brenner, her colleagues, team of experts and staff are phenominal. I hired them to help me to see my son who had been taken out of state by my wife during this insane pandemic. She decided to take him to stay with family but then she sideswiped me with a divorce. I was devastated. Lois Brenner and her litigation partner fought for me and made it possible for me to see my son. They are handling my divorce now and their strength and support is getting me through a really tough time. They are smart, tough and highly experienced.
    “I'm grateful you did not give up on us.”
    I just wanted to take a moment to personally thank you for the wonderful job you did mediating our separation agreement and putting this document together. You not only saved us hundreds of thousands of dollars but helped avoid what would have been a disastrous future in court. I'm grateful you did not give up on us. If I ever am involved in another situation like this, and I hope I never am, I would certainly recommend your services.
