No one goes into a marriage thinking that it will end. Unfortunately, the sad truth is that about half of all US marriages now end in divorce. Not only is divorce a major life change, but it also involves plenty of court dates, plenty of stress and plenty of money paying for a divorce attorney, unless an agreement is made for an uncontested divorce.
However, if you and your spouse can agree to negotiate terms without involving the courts, it will be a significantly less expensive affair.
You Don't Need A Lawyer To Get A Cheap Divorce
In New York State, there are two ways to obtain an order for an uncontested divorce:
1. You file an action with your spouse. This can be done with or without the assistance of a divorce attorney.
2. The courts may grant one for cases when one party files a Summons and Complaint, and the other party does not respond to the filing. Just as if a mutual divorce application was filed, you are not legally required to use a lawyer.
Negotiating An Uncontested Divorce Through A Mediator
It is important to be mindful of the fact that seeking an alternative to the high costs, hassles and stress of a lengthy contested divorce proceeding does not also mean you have to walk away from the marital assets. This simply means that you and your spouse agreed to work out the details, whether on your own or with the help of a mediator.
