Cheaper Divorce Option | Uncontested Divorce
An uncontested divorce can be in a least costly way of proceeding forward in your situation, it’s where your parties communicate with one another, determine how it is that they intent to divide their asset, to decide how the house is going to be taken care of, sold? Divided between the two of them? Whether one party is going to assume the mortgage? Payoffs the other party as far as the equity’s in the house, divide your personal property, decides custody and access as far as children are concerned. Those terms, if the parties can agree upon them, can be incorporated into a written agreement, which can then later be incorporated into a judgment of the divorce or shortly after it’s signed incorporated into the judgment of the divorce. It is definitely the least costly way and quite frankly, the way that prevents parties from having to go through a lot of emotional turmoil.
Cheaper Divorce Option | Length of Divorce
An uncontested divorce in New York State is probably going to take about 3 or 4 months before it is signed by the judge and filed in a county clerk’s office. But it depends upon how long it’s going to take for the parties to come to terms on the equitable distribution of their assets. A contested divorce can take much longer. Contested divorce proceedings typically around 8 months, 12 months, or longer, depending upon how long it takes to bring the parties together in a settlement agreement, if the parties never settle an agreement, they can’t, then the judge is going to have to decide and that means that there is going to be a trial. A trial maybe an issue with regards to simply financials, it could be an issue with regards to custody of the children, and these two types of trials can be done together or it can be done separately, depending upon how the parties are able to work with one another on the other issues.
