Divorce can be complex. You’re unsure of what to expect and how it all works. We know. That’s why we’ve compiled some of the most common questions we get asked by our clients on issues ranging from New York residency requirements to child support to the division of retirement accounts. If there is anything that we haven’t covered - give us a call, we’d love to chat with you.
An "uncontested divorce," as opposed to a "contested divorce," is where (a) you and your spouse agree on all divorce-related issues (i.e., child custody and support, division of marital property and spousal support); and (b) your spouse cooperates with the execution of the divorce documents or is served with the "Summons and Complaint" and fails to appear in the proceedings or otherwise challenge the divorce. If your spouse will cooperate, an uncontested divorce is the quickest, friendliest, and most affordable way to dissolve your marriage without any required court appearances.
That is a question we get asked often. The court's processing time for an uncontested divorce will vary from county to county. In the 5 Boroughs of New York City, the average processing time for an uncontested divorce is typically 10-12 months. Upstate New York counties have significantly shorter processing times ranging from 5-6 months. The following counties have reported backlogs of approximately 10-12 months:

Yes, we can address any types of assets including real estate, 401(k)s, pensions, and other financial accounts. Please note that while we do provide for the division of retirement accounts in your Settlement Agreement, our services do not include the preparation of Qualified Domestic Relations Orders (QDROs). A QDRO is typically required in order to affect a penalty-free transfer of funds from one spouse's pension or retirement account to an account belonging to the other spouse. However, we do work closely with several pension preparation services to which we will refer you, if needed, upon review of your file.
Yes. If you have an existing Family Court Order concerning Child Support or Custody, we will incorporate the terms Ordered by the Family Court into your Judgment of Divorce. This will serve to continue any existing Order of Custody or Support that had been previously issued by the Court. We will, of course, need to include a copy of any such Order(s) in your divorce filings.
