What is an Uncontested Divorce?

When you and your spouse agree that it is best to end your marriage, New York law provides the option for an uncontested divorce. This type of divorce does not involve the intervention of the family court. It is a divorce in which you and your spouse can agree on many of the main issues affected by your divorce. In order for a divorce to be considered uncontested in New York, you and your spouse must be able to agree on: 

  • The grounds for the divorce 
  • Child custody if there are children involved 
  • Child support if there are children involved 
  • The division of property

Many couples cite ‘irreconcilable differences’ as the grounds for divorce in an uncontested divorce. This means that neither spouse is blaming the other for causing the divorce. However, it does mean that the spouses agree that they have grown apart and can no longer live together as a married couple. In the event that one spouse blames the other for issues resulting in the divorce, the proceedings will most likely continue as a contested divorce that involves the court in the matter. 

Divorce proceedings can further be complicated when there are children involved. In an uncontested divorce, the spouses must still address issues to do with child custody and child support. Couples must agree on issues such as who will have custody of the children, who will be responsible for child support payments, the amount of these payments, and visitation rights in order for the divorce to be uncontested. 

With so many issues to address in the divorce process is important to have the representation of an experienced and knowledgeable NYC uncontested divorce lawyer.
