Uncontested Simple Divorce

Brooklyn Uncontested Divorce Lawyer

An uncontested (simple) divorce is when both parties involved in the marriage are able to resolve issues without court intervention. Although the parties may be experiencing an amicable divorce, it is still advisable to seek help from an attorney during this time. I provide experienced and practical legal representation to clients who are experiencing an uncontested divorce. I strive to help clients reach time-efficient resolutions—in many cases an uncontested divorce can be finalized within three months of filing.
