How Do I Obtain an Uncontested Divorce in New York?
As a dedicated New York Divorce Attorney, I am often asked how someone can obtain an uncontested divorce. You’ll take a number of steps to obtain an uncontested divorce. First, you and your spouse must agree on certain specific issues, including division of your assets, division of your liabilities or debts, custody of your children if you have any, child support, and spousal maintenance. Your agreement regarding each of these issues must be reduced to writing in a document called either an opting agreement or a separation agreement. Once that agreement is completed and signed, the papers required to obtain an actual divorce are prepared. You will each sign some of those papers, and they will be submitted to the court for review. The court will ask for any required corrections. Once your documents are approved, the court will sign the judgment of divorce, and it will be filed with the county clerk’s office.
