Uncontested Divorce Focuses On Resolving Disputes Without Litigating
If your divorce is uncontested, why are the services of an attorney required? It’s a fair question. The short answer is even if you and your spouse agree on all terms of your divorce, you will need a lawyer to draw up those agreements so they can be approved by the court.
The slightly longer answer is that many uncontested divorces don’t start out with complete agreement between spouses. Many couples are aware of the benefits of uncontested divorce — lower cost, less stress and more control over the agreements that must be reached being among the most important positive aspects. But you may need some clarification on New York laws and some assistance reaching agreement on critical matters such as custody and parenting plans, property division or support.

Uncontested Divorce Is Trending For A Reason
Couples of all ages and with a wide range of financial and personal backgrounds are embracing uncontested divorce. There is a lot of truth to the sentiment that the only people who come out ahead in aggressively litigated divorces are the attorneys. There are situations in which resolving a family law dispute in court makes sense, but if you and your partner can reach agreement using compromise and common sense, the short-term and long-term benefits are evident.
