Contested vs. Uncontested Divorce

The difference between contested and uncontested divorce is simple: if you and your spouse are in total agreement on all aspects of the divorce, it is considered uncontested. If, however, there are things such as alimony, property division, or child custody that you are unable to come to an agreement on, it is a contested divorce.

When you, your spouse, and your representatives are able to work out a settlement out of court that is agreeable to everyone, it does tend to be easier on time, resources, and energy. However, it is important that you do involve someone skilled in handling uncontested divorce matters on Long Island to ensure that you are fully aware of any long-term repercussions that could crop up. Contested divorce proceedings are generally much more involved. In these cases, it is considered highly likely that the parties will need the help of skilled, experienced attorneys in divorce court to resolve their differences in a fair and just manner.

Dividing Marital Property Fairly

In New York, debts and marital property are divided equitably between the spouses. Determining what is considered “equitable” will fall to the court, based on a variety of factors which indicate each spouse’s contribution to the marriage as a whole.

When the courts must get involved with property division, they will examine a number of factors, such as:

  • The length of the marriage
  • Each spouse’s age
  • Income of each party
  • Future earning potential
  • Standard of living established during the marriage
  • Childcare or homemaking responsibilities
