Uncontested Divorce Lawyer

Helping New York City Couples To Divorce Amicably

For some couples, the only thing they can agree upon is that they need to divorce. Unfortunately, these couples will often need the courts to decide the terms of dissolving their marriage, and this can often result in a lengthy and adversarial process. Thankfully, not all divorcing couples experience a contentious relationship, and they recognize the enormous benefits of engaging in an amicable dissolution of marriage.

For such couples, negotiating an uncontested divorce can provide smooth and efficient means to end their marriage. At Peter L. Cedeño and Associates, P.C., our accomplished New York City divorce attorney can provide the skilled negotiating ability you need to protect your rights during mediation and all other procedures involved in your divorce.

Agreements To A Peaceful Option

In an uncontested divorce, couples have the ability to reach a harmonious resolution to the dissolution of their marriage. For couples who would like to pursue this more peaceful option, the divorce action must meet certain criteria.

The qualifications for an uncontested divorce are:

  • Absence of domestic violence or abuse
  • Both parties in agreement to the divorce or one spouse is absent
  • No disagreements to child custody, spousal support or property division
  • Grounds for the divorce are accepted by both parties

Reaping The Benefits

No matter how friendly the procedure may be, the breakup of a marriage is often an emotionally painful experience. Couples may decide to choose mediation over litigation in order to prevent adding insult to injury.

The benefits of an uncontested divorce are numerous and include:

  • No need for a lengthy trial
  • Couples, instead of a judge, decide the details
  • Quicker resolution

Necessity For Skilled Legal Representation

Although it is usually conducted around a conference table instead of a courtroom, an uncontested divorce is still a legal proceeding. Careful consideration must be given to ensure both parties live up to their responsibilities as well as have their rights protected. In addition, uncontested divorces must adhere to state law requirements.
