Terms of Divorce in New York City
Making Your Uncontested Divorce Work for You
One of the worst aspects of getting a divorce is that it often leaves one
or both of the spouses deeply unsatisfied with the final result. When
you take your divorce to court, the family law judge who decides on matters
such as the
custody of your children and the
division of your shared property may have extensive experience with the law, but he or she is not the most
qualified person to decide on such personal affairs. Unfortunately, if
your divorce is decided in court you will have to abide by the terms of
the final decree which is delivered by the judge.
Why should anyone but you and your spouse be given the power to determine
who your children will live with, who gets the house and whether either
of you will pay
spousal maintenance? This is one of the best reasons to pursue an
uncontested divorce: it allows you and your spouse to stay in charge of the outcome of the
divorce so that you can walk away from the situation with terms that work for you.

Deciding the Terms of Your Divorce
In an uncontested divorce, you and your spouse will sit down across the
negotiating table to work out the terms of:
The outcome of these negotiations will be up to you. Before you can get
the divorce finalized, you will have to submit the proposed settlement
agreement to the judge, who will review the arrangements you have made
to ensure that they are in line with the provisions of state law.
For example, the parenting plan must be clearly in the best interests of
the children, and your agreements on the division of property must meet
the criteria of equitable distribution so that neither party is left in
serious hardship after the divorce. By and large, however, you and your
spouse will be able to decide how the divorce is settled, based on your
own needs and expectations.
