New York Uncontested Divorce and Separation Agreement
Definition, Requirements, Pricing, and Quick Start Options Below
Our Separation Agreement and Divorce Option is for clients who wish to obtain a divorce, and they have not done any of the work necessary to start the process. In other words, they do not have a agreement (separation agreement). Prior to obtaining a judgment of divorce, we must prepare a legally binding agreement under New York law. That agreement can be called an opting out agreement, a settlement agreement, or a separation agreement. By using those terms we are referring to the same agreement each time we speak about it. In addition to that agreement, we must prepare the documents necessary to obtain a judgment of divorce.
The cost for this option is two-fold; the first cost is a one-time flat fee $630 disbursement and filing fee expense. That fee covers all the filing fees and disbursements that we must pay to obtain your judgment of divorce. It includes an index number, certificate of dissolution, service of process, photocopying, postage, and any other expense that we might incur while undertaking your work.
The legal fee is either $795 if you do not have children or $895 if you do have children.
