What is an Uncontested Divorce?

In an uncontested divorce, both spouses agree on all divorce-related and financial matters, such as:

Contested Divorce vs Uncontested Divorce

While contested divorce proceedings can be long, complicated, messy, and expensive, uncontested divorce proceedings are the opposite. In fact, an uncontested divorce is often the fastest way to end a marriage.

When both parties in a marriage are in agreement over the end of their relationship, the mutual desire to resolve matters amicably can lead to faster negotiations for property distribution, joint custody agreements, and an overall better relationship in cases where there are children involved.

Perhaps the most important benefit of an uncontested divorce is the minimal stress that comes with it. The chances of keeping a friendly and respectful relationship intact—be it a friendship or co-parenting relationship—are heightened.

In short, since uncontested divorce proceedings already have the main issues resolved, the entire process can pass much more quickly and efficiently. This often results in lower court costs and attorney fees.

What are the Requirements For an Uncontested Divorce in New York?

The process for an uncontested divorce in New York involves meeting certain requirements and following specific procedures. Here are the key steps and requirements:

  • Residency Requirements: Either you or your spouse must meet the residency requirements. One of you must have been living in New York for at least two continuous years before filing for divorce, or both spouses must be residents of New York on the day the divorce is filed, and the grounds for the divorce must have occurred in New York.
  • Grounds for Divorce: In New York, you may file for a no-fault divorce. No-fault divorce is based on the irretrievable breakdown of the marriage for a period of at least six months.
  • Agreement on Major Issues: As mentioned above both spouses must agree on all significant matters, including the division of marital property, child custody and visitation, child support, and spousal support.
