Types of Divorce in New York

In New York, there are two types of divorce: uncontested or contested. Uncontested divorce is when both spouses agree to the divorce – they do not disagree on any aspect of the divorce, such as child custody, visitation, child support, alimony, property division, and more. In some situations, a settlement agreement may apply in terms of notating details of an agreement.

In a contested divorce, one spouse disagrees with the divorce and may also not agree with other aspects of the divorce – these types of divorce can be complex and take longer to process. In this situation, it is imperative to work with an experienced divorce attorney in Bronx, NY.
