Even in the most straightforward or amicable divorce, it can be helpful to have legal advice and support. Having an experienced attorney's assistance with your uncontested divorce can give you the assurance that every aspect of your divorce is being handled correctly.
In New York, uncontested divorce is available to couples who have reached agreement on all divorce-related issues, including those related to property division, child support, child custody, and spousal support. In an uncontested divorce, both parties agree to the divorce, or the non-filing party simply fails to appear in the divorce action.
At the Law Offices of Andreas Vasilatos, PLLC, we understand that just because your divorce is uncontested doesn't mean it is easy for you. We are committed to ensuring the process is efficient and as stress-free as possible for you.
Because all issues have been resolved in an uncontested divorce, the process is typically much more predictable and less expensive than a contested divorce. However, in many cases, a divorce that starts out uncontested may not end that way. One party may decide that they have changed their mind about an issue that appeared to have been resolved, and the divorce may become contested.
When that happens, it becomes even more important to have an experienced New York matrimonial attorney at your side. An attorney may be able to help quickly resolve any contested issues so that the divorce can again proceed smoothly and without incident. If those issues cannot be settled, an attorney who was familiar with your case from the beginning is well-positioned to be a strong advocate for you in further negotiations or at trial.
