Contested Divorce Compared To Uncontested Divorce
In New York State, a Contested Divorce is a Divorce where the parties do not agree on all of the issues that need to be resolved for a Divorce to be finalized. Those issues include the basis for Divorce, child support and custody, division of assets, and spousal maintenance. If even one of those issues is not agreed upon, your Divorce is Contested. However, if you and your spouse have agreed on all of those issues, you can obtain a Divorce relatively quickly. Your Attorney can prepare Uncontested Divorce documents to obtain the Divorce in a relatively short period of time.
