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.

    “Smart, tough, responsive Attorney !”
    When my daughter was sideswiped and served with a summons by her husband we called Lois Brenner. I had met Lois when she was giving a seminar on Marriage and Finances. I thought she was really smart. I never dreamt I would be calling her to help my daughter. When we went to see her she put our minds at ease. We immediately knew she was the attorney for us. She managed to negotiate a really good settlement with my son-in-law’s attorney. She was tough and always returned our phone calls and responded immediately to our emails. We even heard from her on weekends!! She was determined to keep us out of court and guided us every step of the way. She was our Angel!!! Mary B.

    We have Lois Brenner to thank for turning our marriage around. We hired Lois as our mediator when we were considering divorce. When we started working with her and she realized we wanted to try to keep our marriage together she suggested a postnuptial agreement to get our marriage back on track. Having the postnuptial agreement made us both accountable when it came to our issues. Having this doc in place is clearly helping us redefine our marriage in a better way. I don’t know if we will never get divorced, but for now we are respecting each others’ boundaries and are aware of the consequences if we don’t! It was really cool that Ms. Brenner suggested this method as an option. Most divorce attorneys would not have suggested a way for us to try to stay together. She is very talented and unusual in the best possible way. If we choose to take the divorce path eventually we will definitely hire her again. In the meantime we are making it work. She is amazing.

    I am a highly successful money manager and before meeting Lois Brenner, hiring a divorce attorney was a disaster. Two previous divorce attorneys really wasted my funds, and had no savvy when it came to asset and property distribution. Lois Brenner finally fixed the mess I was in. She and her team of financial experts, including attorney Matthew Ehrlich were able to prepare an asset and property distribution that was realistic, keeping in mind tax ramifications, and important distributions and allocations. They negotiated a thorough and financially sound divorce settlement. If you have a lot of assets, just any divorce attorney won’t do. You really need someone with a lot of knowledge. Lois Brenner and Matthew Ehrlich were really impressive. Thanks!!

    “LOIS AND MATT ARE LIT!”
    You two are really the dynamic duo! I can’t thank you both enough for the incredible job you did on my case. As a young career woman and working mother of a toddler I could not have been in better hands. You really toughened me up and guided me when I was feeling really lost. I was afraid of my husband’s clever antics but you worked hard on my case and encouraged me to fight. The settlement I received exceeded my expectations. You both listened, always returned e-mails, phone calls and even reached out to me on the weekends when I was having trouble. If anyone is going through a divorce and needs the best people to fight for you call Lois and Matt. It was the best thing I ever did. There are no words to express how grateful I am.

    “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.

    “"Like at First Sight!"”
    "Like at First Sight!" We consulted Lois on the best, most cost-effective way to get divorced. First, she extended a free in-office consultation to us. It was supposed to be one hour; it was an hour and a half. She was gracious, didn’t rush us, explained thoroughly all the ins and outs of going to court, and answered thoroughly lots of our questions. She also shared lots of great information on divorce mediation, which we really knew nothing about, and now we have decided mediation will be the best route for us. We knew in the first 10 minutes that we really liked and trusted her. We are starting our mediation process with her next week. We are really looking forward to working with her. We feel strongly she is the best person for us.
