At Goldweber Epstein LLP, we strive to help our clients understand the choices they have when it comes to divorce in the State of New York. The process begins when one spouse purchases a Summons with Notice from the county clerk. The purchasing spouse is now bound by the Automatic Stays. Once the other spouse is served, he/she is then bound by the Automatic Stays also. How it proceeds after this point depends largely on whether or not spouses can come to an agreement on the terms of the divorce.

If you anticipate that the marriage can be dissolved amicably, an uncontested divorce may be the best option for you. This is the quickest, most efficient, and least costly way to dissolve a marriage. Due to its convenience, uncontested divorce is quickly becoming the most preferred option for marriage dissolution of several New Yorkers.
If these issues can be worked out without the intervention of a judge, you can file for an uncontested divorce. Our divorce attorneys can help guide through every step of the process by negotiating and preparing an agreement that outlines the details. Once the agreement is signed by both parties, we submit this to court, for the final Judgement of Divorce or the official dissolution of your marriage.
In the event that our client is unable to find common ground with their spouse, a contested divorce may be the only viable solution. Although this option is more complex and expensive, when one spouse does not agree to the above-listed issues, litigation becomes necessary.
With over three decades of extensive and widely recognized trial experience, our team is well-equipped to handle the litigation process. We are known for aggressively fighting for our clients to ensure that their rights are protected in court while using time-proven strategies to minimize the emotional and financial damage that are often the results of a long drawn-out divorce.
Filing for divorce can take its toll if you do not have the right advice and guidance during the process. Our legal team has handled divorces in Manhattan and New York City for more than 30 years and will work hard to ensure that you get the best possible outcome.
