When considering an uncontested divorce, you may wonder if you need to use an attorney. There are numerous websites and advertisements that promise quick and inexpensive do-it-yourself divorces. However, many people who choose these options end up spending more time and money trying to fix the problems they create in attempting to do things on their own than they would have if they had just gotten legal help in the first place.

What is an Uncontested Divorce in Manhattan?
An uncontested divorce in Manhattan occurs when both parties agree on all aspects of their divorce and do not require court intervention for decision-making. These are considered amicable divorces as there are agreements regarding spousal support, child support, and asset division. Uncontested divorces are relatively less expensive and faster than contested divorces.
To qualify for an uncontested divorce in Manhattan, one of the parties must meet the New York residency requirements and agree upon the following:
- The Grounds for divorce;
- Child custody;
- Child support; and
- Division of property.
The grounds for an uncontested divorce is typically “irreconcilable differences.” This means that neither spouse is to blame for the breakup of the marriage rather the two have grown apart and any mutual interests have changed.
While every divorce is unique, uncontested divorces take far less time than traditional divorce proceedings. Generally, an uncontested divorce takes around six to eight weeks, but some take three months or longer depending on the court’s schedule and the timing of paperwork.
