No-Fault Divorce in NYC
No-fault divorce has eliminated the need to have grounds for divorce or proving fault, which is costly and emotionally draining. There are other potential areas of disagreement which need to be dealt with. A no-fault divorce can be uncontested or contested. If matters of child support, custody, property division and spousal support are uncontested, the process is very easy. Some rare couples are in agreement with all of these matters.
There are usually issues connected with how the marital debt will be divided, and how property will be divided. If there are children, the subject of custody and support can require a court order if there are substantial disagreements on these issues. All of these matters can be negotiated in a conference room, but if that is not possible, taken to trial. Our New York City divorce attorney has extensive trial experience and a large team of professionals to prepare the cases. Whether it is a simple uncontested no- fault divorce, or a contested high net worth divorce, we have the access to exceptional resources to protect your parental rights and future financial security.
