Long Island Divorce Lawyers Offer Quality Uncontested Divorce Representation


Negotiating a fair agreement at a fair price

For over 35 years, Simonetti & Associates has efficiently served family law clients, resolving their cases as quickly and inexpensively as possible. While some divorce lawyers encourage their clients to fight out every issue, we want you to avoid a costly divorce. So, throughout Long Island and Nassau County, we firmly negotiate fair agreements, allowing our clients to proceed, whenever possible, with an uncontested divorce.

How can an attorney help with an uncontested divorce in New York?

In an uncontested divorce, both parties agree on how to resolve all of the issues related to the dissolution of their marriage. This usually requires the spouses to discuss those issues and retain individual attorneys to negotiate the terms. The attorneys memorialize the agreement in a document called a divorce settlement agreement, which the spouses sign and submit to the court for approval. The divorce settlement agreement details how the spouses want to handle all material aspects of the dissolution of their marriage, including:

  • Child custody
  • Child support
  • Visitation
  •  Spousal support
  • Division of property
  • Grounds for divorce (usually no-fault)


Contested versus uncontested divorce — when a couple agrees on most but not all issues

A couple can only file uncontested if the divorce settlement agreement is complete. A single point of disagreement on a single issue means that the divorce is contested. However, the court can accept the settlement terms for those aspects of the divorce where there is agreement and hold the other issues over for trial. Often, spouses do not agree on terms for support, property division, or child custody. Contested divorces are common for couples with minor children because custody of the children is so crucial for most parents. Contested divorces cost significantly more in terms of legal fees, take longer, and create more stress for the parties. However, there are ways of protecting against the high litigation costs, most notably through mediation. Simonetti & Associates is committed to obtaining fair and reasonable terms for our clients while guarding against cost escalations.

How long does an uncontested divorce take?

The length of the divorce process depends on the size of the marital estate and the level of cooperation between the spouses. If spouses can agree on the division of property, child and spousal support, child custody, and visitation, all that remains is to file the agreement with the court. However, even if everything goes smoothly between the divorcing couple, you must consider the waiting time for the local court, which can be several months.
