New York City Uncontested Divorce Attorney
Uncontested Divorce Cases
The court encourages spouses seeking a divorce to work out their own agreements regarding asset distribution and other matters pertaining to the marriage. This is called an uncontested divorce and usually requires the assistance of a skilled
New York City divorce lawyer with considerable experience in divorce cases. Once an agreement is worked out, it is signed by both spouses and submitted to the court for approval and inclusion in the final settlement.
Martial property is considered any assets acquired during the marriage, unless a spouse can prove otherwise. Under state, law marital property is divided equitably between spouses. Any property acquired before the marriage, called separate property, is not distributed as part of the divorce settlement. Property division even in an uncontested divorce can become extremely complex if a lot of assets are involved, or there is disagreement over items classified as marital or separate property. A competent and thorough attorney can ensure nothing is overlooked and the assets are distributed fairly.
