Uncontested Divorce vs Contested Divorce

Generally, most divorces fall into one of two categories, uncontested divorce or contested divorce. Contested divorces are what most people think of when they think of divorce. This type of marriage dissolution happens when one or both spouses don’t agree on important issues. Usually, contested divorces can take much longer to settle than uncontested divorces and they typically require mediation or a court decision to settle one or more important dissolution factors.

Uncontested divorces, on the other hand are when both spouses can agree on all important issues including child custody, child support, alimony, and division of property. Additionally, each state has unique requirements that must be met in order to be eligible to file for an uncontested divorce. To qualify for an uncontested divorce in New York:

  • At least one spouse must have lived in the state of New York continuously for two years prior to filing
  • Both spouses are currently living in New York
  • The got marriage occurred in New York, you lived there as a married couple, or the cause of your divorce happened in the state
