What are the types of divorce in NY?
1) Uncontested- An “Uncontested Divorce,” as opposed to a “contested divorce,” is where you and your spouse are in agreement regarding all divorce-related issues (i.e., child custody and support, division of marital property or spousal support); and your spouse either agrees to the divorce, or is served and fails to appear in the divorce action.
2) Contested-New York State defines any divorce to be contested if you and your spouse disagree on at least one aspect of divorce at the time of filing. While a contested divorce, by definition, can be more complicated than an uncontested one, you will be in good hands by hiring a good lawyer.
