Uncontested Divorce/Dissolution Attorney in Dutchess County, Ulster County, and Orange County

Not every divorce has to involve courtroom battles and spouses who refuse to work together. In many situations, divorcing spouses are able to agree to the relevant terms of their divorce and file what is known as an “uncontested” divorce, also called the dissolution of marriage. This is a simplified process that can result in a quicker judgment, but it is still important to have the right legal representation.

An uncontested divorce can save you time, stress, and money, so discuss this option with an uncontested dissolution attorney handling cases in New York.

Requirements for an Uncontested Divorce

In order to have an uncontested divorce, you and your spouse must:

  • Agree to get divorced
  • Agree on how to resolve all of the terms of your divorce, including:
    • Child custody
    • Child support
    • Spousal support
    • Property division

This does not mean that you have to agree from the very start of the process. Our law firm regularly helps clients negotiate with their spouses to find resolutions prior to filing a case. We can represent you through the mediation process, if needed to help you compromise and reach a favorable agreement on all required matters.

If you are able to agree, you can file an uncontested divorce, and the court will simply have to approve your terms. You still want to have the guidance of a lawyer to ensure that your agreement is in line with New York law and that it is favorable to your rights and future.
