New York Uncontested Divorce
Your New York divorce doesn't have to cost you a lot of money. If you and your spouse agree on how to end your marriage, on how to divide your marital assets and on how you will both provide for the minor children of the marriage, then you may be able to end your unhappy marriage with a fast and affordable uncontested divorce.
A New York uncontested divorce is a quick and affordable way to end your marriage and begin your new life. In order to qualify for a New York uncontested divorce both your and your spouse must agree on the following issues:
- Whether both parties accept that a divorce from each other must happen
- What the grounds for the divorce will be
- How to divide all of the martial assets, including cash accounts and property
- How to divide the marital debt
- Who will maintain custody of the minor children
- What amount of child support will be paid, if there are minor children
- What if any spousal maintenance or alimony will be paid, by whom, and for how long
If you and your spouse do not agree on everything right now, it doesn't necessarily mean that an uncontested divorce cannot be accomplished. An experienced New York divorce attorney with strong and effective negotiating skills can often times help divorcing couples reach an agreement where it didn't seem likely, making a New York uncontested divorce possible.

New York Legal Separation Agreements
Getting engaged is an exciting time in one's life. When you decide the time is right to get married you should also consider a prenuptial agreement in the unfortunate event that your marriage, like over fifty percent of marriages in the United States, ends in divorce.
If you are working hard at building your life and career, or if you expect your premarital assets to increase in value during your marriage, it makes sense to protect your efforts with a New York prenuptial agreement so as to avoid the bitter fight over money, assets, investments and, believe it or not, professional degrees, that often times occurs during a divorce.
With a professionally written New York prenuptial agreement, you can avoid the ugly battles over assets that often occurs between divorcing couples. Prenuptial agreements can also address the liabilities or debts in the marriage, as well as the payment or non payment of spousal maintenance.
The time to seek advice on entering into a prenuptial agreement is soon after you are engaged, and not less than at least four months prior to your wedding. Remember that each party should seek the advice of independent legal counsel when negotiating and drafting a prenuptial agreement. This ensures that both parties rights are equally protected during the negotiation process.

New York Prenuptial Agreements
A legal separation protects the rights of married couples who want to live apart from each other but not necessarily divorce.
With a New York legal separation agreement your rights as a spouse and parent are protected during the separation.
Legal separation agreements deal with the same issues that one would address in an uncontested divorces as outlined above, just as if the parties were divorcing. Full financial disclosures would have to be made by both parties, as is the case in an actual divorce.
If after living apart under a legal separation agreement the parties have still not reunited, the parties have the option of turning the legal separation agreement into an uncontested divorce. However, bear in mind that converting a legal separation into an actual divorce after the lapse of the 12 month period is not mandatory.
Although not an actual divorce, legal separation agreements should be handled by an experienced New York matrimonial attorney. Parties should never try to negotiate a separation agreement on their own.
