As an experienced New York Divorce Lawyer, I will have clients come and ask if they need an agreement in writing to get an uncontested divorce.
- Both spouses must agree on all of the issues that need to be resolved to obtain an uncontested divorce, and that agreement must be reduced to writing.
- Compliance with New York law requires the written agreement to follow a specific format.
- If the couple’s objective is to obtain an uncontested divorce based on papers alone and without a need to go to court, a written agreement is required.
