Benefits of an Uncontested Divorce

In order to file in the State of NY, the law requires that a couple must provide grounds (a legal reason) for the termination of their marriage. Whatever the grounds may be, some couples can move forward with a divorce by resolving their issues privately.

If a couple is able to agree on all the terms of their separation, including child custody, support, or property distribution, the couple can enter what is called an uncontested divorce.

Benefits of Filing an Uncontested Divorce Include:

  • Minimize or completely eliminate negative emotional consequences
  • Reduce financial impact
  • Swift and affordable resolution
  • Cooperative and private process
  • Allows couples to make customized orders based on their own decisions

Does Adultery Affect Divorce?

In New York, adultery does have an affect because couples are given the option to seek a “fault” divorce. This means poor treatment, and abandonment can be treated as a marital fault. Usually, adultery is not considered when awarding alimony or dividing marital property.

Do You Have to Be Separated for a Year?

In NY State, if you and your spouse have been separated for at least one year or if there's been an “irretrievable breakdown of the marriage” for at least six months you can seek a no-fault divorce. Couples can also seek legal separation after entering into a separation agreement and living apart for at least one year.

What Is a Wife Entitled to in a Divorce?

Under New York’s equitable distribution laws, a wife is entitled to “marital property”. This means that you and your spouse will get to keep any separate property that was brought into the marriage.

Divorce Mediation

The state of NY allows couples to navigate a divorce out of court through the process of mediation. Through mediation, a couple can have the opportunity to negotiate with one another regarding the dissolution of their marriage. This allows couples to maintain a sense of control over their marital split.
