Contested And Uncontested Divorce: Experienced New York City and Long Island Attorneys
Uncontested divorces occur when the spouses are able to agree on all of the issues necessary to complete a divorce, including the distribution of property, child custody and parenting time, counsel fees, child support and maintenance.
UNCONTESTED DIVORCE SETTLEMENTS:
An uncontested divorce involves a settlement agreement being filed with the court along with other legal documents prepared by your lawyer. The documents are processed by the court and the parties’ lawyers are notified when the judgment of divorce is signed. In an uncontested divorce, the parties do not need the court to help resolve their disputed issues and the parties never appear in court.
