WHAT TYPES OF DIVORCE ARE AVAILABLE IN NEW YORK?

Read more
There are two main types of divorces in New York:

• Uncontested: A couple must agree on the grounds for the divorce and reach a settlement agreement that addresses property division, child custody, child support and alimony. The settlement can be based on the terms of a premarital or postmarital agreement if you have one.

• Contested: When spouses cannot agree on property division, child custody, child support or alimony, the process takes much longer. However, the couple may reach a settlement agreement at any point during the process without having to go to trial.

HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO GET AN UNCONTESTED DIVORCE?
The reality is that couples sometimes take weeks or months to arrive at an agreement. Once all of the issues have been settled and all of the paperwork has been signed and filed with the court, your divorce can be final in six to twelve weeks.
WE WORK TO ACHIEVE AMICABLE RESOLUTIONS WHEN POSSIBLE

The attorney and staff at the law offices of Lauren B. Abramson exhaust all options to arrive at an amicable settlement before going to court. Even in high-asset divorces and complex custody matters, it is often possible to reach an agreement through negotiations, the collaborative law process or mediation. You are in a better position than a court to make decisions about your future.

However, if the other party is unreasonable, and a settlement cannot be reached, we have the experience to litigate fiercely on your behalf. With her background as a litigator, Lauren B. Abramson is a seasoned veteran of the courtroom.
