Uncontested Divorce Lawyers in Queens
Professional Guidance Through Any Type of Divorce
Divorce is always complicated and involves a lot of legal paperwork, but in some cases, it could be made a bit simpler. If you and your spouse are on the same page and are in agreement on every detail of your divorce, from division of assets to child custody, you may be able to have an uncontested divorce. At Levi Divorce & Family Law Attorneys, principal attorney Natalie Markfeld and our uncontested divorce attorneys in Queens can help you and your spouse to end your marriage civilly.
How Uncontested Divorce Works
Even if you and your spouse are in agreement, there’s still a number of documents you’ll need to prepare and submit in order to get a divorce. We are experienced in filing the necessary paperwork and can help expedite the process. However, no matter how friendly you and your spouse are, we are only able to represent one party—your spouse will need their own lawyer.
The uncontested divorce process includes a number of steps:
- Submitting a petition for divorce
- Submitting documents that prove parties are participants in the case
- Submitting documents that disclose each party’s financial assets
- Submitting a settlement agreement
- Submitting a proposed Judgment
- Signing and filing all documents
Some jurisdictions require couples to attend couples therapy prior to the divorce, while others require couples to physically attend a hearing to swear that all your documents are true and correct. Even a divorce with little to no conflict can take time to get through. Our lawyers know the ins and outs of the New York court system and can help prepare you for what lies ahead.
Benefits of Uncontested Divorce
The most obvious benefit of an uncontested divorce is being able to end your marriage in a civil manner, free of tensions and conflict.
Other benefits include:
- Saving money by avoiding the cost of litigation
- More privacy thanks to fewer third parties involved
- Better chance of dividing assets in a mutually satisfactory way
The only thing the judge has to ensure in an uncontested divorce is that both parties understand the agreement before they finalize it. Once all your paperwork is submitted and the judge approves it, that’s it. You’re officially divorced, and you and your ex-spouse can move on with your lives feeling lighter knowing you were able to make it through without going to war.
