Uncontested Divorce

There is some good news in all of this. Most people don’t have to go through the anguish and expense of a full-blown divorce trial. You can obtain an uncontested divorce when both parties have agreed on all issues.

Child Custody and Support

New York family law allows for custody to be awarded in multiple ways: physical, legal, and temporary custody. The need for enforcement often occurs after divorce in connection with child or spousal support orders. Income levies or income deduction orders are by far the most common means of enforcing orders of support. Income levies and deductions for support may reach as high as 65% of the obligor’s income, after deductions required by law.

Mediation and Separation

In divorce mediation, a neutral and trained third party helps the disputing spouses arrive at a mutually acceptable final settlement of their own design. In general, agreements made during mediation are embodied in a Memorandum of Understanding, which forms the basis for the parties’ divorce lawyers to prepare a separation agreement.

This is a contract between spouses, signed when a legal separation has been granted or when they have agreed to live apart in contemplation of a divorce. The agreement is designed to settle any issues between them, such as:

  • Property
  • Debt
  • Alimony
  • Child Custody
  • Visitation
  • Insurance
  • Tax
  • Child Support


Prenuptial Agreement

There are several reasons for a prenup. Some situations, in particular, lend themselves to a strong consideration of entering into a prenuptial agreement:

  • One of the Parties Might Be Remarrying
  • One Earns More or Is Wealthier Than Other
  • Faster And Cheaper Divorce
  • Controlling Your Future
  • Protecting Your Business and Children
  • Protecting You From Debt and Future Alimony
