Albany Divorce Attorney Discusses the Difficulty of the Uncontested Divorce Process
I’ve been married for 17 yrs and my husband has an issue with seeking emotional comfort elsewhere. We have a 10 year old and I don’t want her to be dragged into a nasty divorce. I just want out…he can have the house etc….I don’t want anything from him. How difficult is the process of an uncontested divorce?
As a Albany Divorce Attorney I will advise clients that a divorce is uncontested only if both parties agree on all of the issues to be decided: child custody, child support, spousal support, and the division of assets. To avoid court, all of those issues have to be properly addressed in a legally binding agreement. If you believe that you and your husband can work those issues without acrimony, your divorce may be uncontested.
However, as has been stated elsewhere, be aware of “buyer’s remorse”. You are likely to regret walking from all of the assets accumulated over a 17 year marriage. You can negotiate a fair agreement without engaging in a nasty litigated divorce. You should at least consult with an Albany Divorce Attorney to determine what your rights are.
