How Does an Uncontested Divorce Work in New York?

An uncontested divorce can either be on consent, on default, or by publication. On consent means that your spouse agrees to the divorce action and will sign the required documents. If your uncontested divorce is on default, your spouse is served the divorce papers, but does not provide a written objection to stop the divorce from going forward.

If the divorce is by publication, the court provides you the permission to publish a legal notice. This is for cases where a person does not know the whereabouts of his or her spouse.

In a divorce that is by consent, the parties have to agree on all legal issues, which could include:


The benefits of an uncontested divorce? When it is the result of respectful negotiations, an uncontested divorce can save you months, potentially years of time. This in turn saves you a great deal of money. You will also have much more control over the outcome of your case as opposed to a contested divorce, where a judge can determine your future.
