Divorce A Different Way
Divorce doesn’t have to be a heated battle that takes years and costs a fortune. The process doesn’t have to leave you drained, financially or emotionally. Amicable divorce is an option for many couples.
Through a no-contest divorce, you can part ways without the hassle, expense and headaches of a lengthy court process. However, it’s still important to seek legal guidance, both to protect your interests and to ensure that everything gets wrapped up in a thorough manner.
There are many ways to navigate a no-contest divorce, and we can help. Our lawyers at Angiuli & Gentile, LLP, have spent decades representing people throughout Long Island and surrounding areas. We understand the many intricacies of New York family law, including no-contest divorces.
What Exactly Is A No-Contest Divorce?
When you and your spouse are in agreement on the divorce itself, that’s a good starting point. A no-contest or uncontested divorce means that you’re also on the same page with regard to all the major issues in your split, including:
- Child custody and parenting time
- Child support
- Property division and debt division
- Alimony (called spousal maintenance in New York)
Sometimes, couples are generally on the same page but need help sorting out the details.
Options For Navigating No-Contest Divorce
Every divorce case is different. Generally, however, a no-contest divorce involves having a lawyer draw up a divorce settlement agreement and filing it with the appropriate court. If issues or disputes come up while addressing the details, mediation offers a lower-cost option for finding common ground.
Why You Should Still Have A Lawyer
Even if your divorce is amicable and uncontested, it’s still wise to have your own lawyer. By working with an attorney, you can make sure that you aren’t giving up important rights without knowing it. You can also avoid complications down the road. Having a skilled lawyer will give you peace of mind knowing that nothing has been overlooked.
