What Is the Process for a Divorce in New York?
Where to Start
Before you decide whether to proceed with the divorce, you first need to learn the main steps you will have to take. You will not be divorced one day, or even months, after you file. Instead, the process takes some time, so you should put a lot of thought into it before making any official decisions. You should meet with an attorney from our firm even before you are positive that you want to go through with the divorce. We can educate you on the matter and answer any questions you have.
What Divorce Option Is Right for You?
Dissolving a marriage can be one of the most difficult decisions a person makes. When a couple cannot agree on provisions within the divorce, another layer of anxiety is added to an already difficult process. Whether the disagreement is about child custody, property division, alimony, or the divorce in general, the divorce becomes contested. Contested divorces take longer, and they require more negotiation to reach an agreement.
An uncontested divorce is a simple matrimonial action that occurs when both parties agree to get a divorce. To truly be an uncontested case, both parties must agree to the complete terms of the divorce, including child custody and support, spousal support, and division of assets.
Mediation is a viable option for couples who are amicable but otherwise unable to come to agreements on their own. A divorce mediator will keep the lines of communication open, help brainstorm ideas, and assist couples in their decision-making process to end their marriage.
When facing a contentious relationship with your soon-to-be ex and disagree on matters such as child custody arrangements and property division, hiring a highly skilled divorce attorney is a must to protect yourself, your family, and your future.
