We’ll Help You File Your Uncontested Divorce
If you and your spouse have reached an agreement about ending your marriage and the conditions for ending said marriage, you may be able to complete a simple divorce process. These types of divorces are referred to as an uncontested divorce and it simply means that you and your spouse do not have disagreements about the division of the assets, custody of the children, or any other issues. Basically, you and your spouse have worked out a solution and you are both satisfied with it.
New York, unfortunately, does not provide or recognize a “no-fault” divorce, however, if you and your spouse file for an uncontested divorce, you may be able to skip court altogether. Many uncontested divorces are done by young couples who have little or no assets and no children. However, this does not mean that couples with children or assets cannot file for one.
Many couples who want a divorce, want it to be uncontested because it is not as stressful and it is often a lot quicker than a contested divorce. If you need help determining whether or not you can file for an uncontested divorce, contact Divorce Lawyer NY now for a FREE consultation.
Important Factors to Keep in Mind about an Uncontested Divorce
It is important to stress that an uncontested divorce is not the right choice for every couple. Some couples think that it is the right choice for them and then emotional or practical complications appear later on down the road. If this occurs, the uncontested divorce will turn into a contested divorce.
There are some important things to keep in mind about divorce, especially as you try to decide what type to file for in Queens or Staten Island.
- New York does NOT recognize irreconcilable differences or incompatibility as any type of ground for a divorce and if you attempt to claim this, you will not have your divorce approved. You MUST establish grounds in New York and you may be asked to provide them as well.
- An uncontested divorce is still a lawsuit and should NOT be attempted without the help of a trained divorce attorney.
- In an uncontested divorce, you and your spouse must come to a WRITTEN agreement on issues involving property division, child custody, and spousal support. These issues need to be addressed and for an uncontested divorce, you and your spouse must agree on them.
An uncontested divorce can save you a lot of stress, time, and money, which is beneficial for all parties involved. If you and your spouse do agree on all matters involving the divorce, then you may be able to file for an uncontested divorce in NY.
