I have often had clients who pondered whether to purchase an inexpensive Uncontested Divorce package online so they can do it themselves. Under New York State Law, a Divorce can be overturned within a year with good cause shown.
An Attorney is critical for both Contested and Uncontested Divorces. They can answer questions like:
Do you have grounds under New York law to obtain a Divorce at this time?
How will you figure out issues of Maintenance, Custody and Child Support without knowing your rights?
How will you divide your property?
When you are eager to "just get this over with", it is difficult to see how your decisions will affect you down the road.
You need the services of a seasoned Attorney to think for you during this upsetting time and make decisions with you that will result in an Uncontested Divorce which cannot be easily overturned, if at all.
A Settlement and Opting Out Agreement, is a contract that is an extra layer of protection when dividing your assets and settling matters regarding your family. You both agree to it, making it unlikely that the other party can go back to Court down the road with the claim that they did not know what they were doing without advice of an Attorney.
An Attorney is critical in drafting the Agreement, protecting your rights, giving much-needed advice, preparing the proper Court documents, and following the correct procedures.
Let me help you avoid legal issues down the road, and make this difficult process easier for you. Your calls and messages will be promptly returned, and your questions will be answered so you feel safe in this process and during this difficult time.
