New York Contested And New York Uncontested Divorce
The timeline for a resolution and potentially the extent of the ongoing hostility after resolution will often be decided by whether the case can be resolved as an uncontested divorce or a contested divorce. A New York uncontested divorce is one in which the parties are able to resolve all issues without the necessity of in-court litigation. A contested divorce, on the other hand, results when the parties cannot resolve one or more issues. Contested divorces are litigated in court but can potentially be resolved prior to trial if the parties can ultimately reach an accord on all matters. The issues that may lead to a contested divorce include:
- Child Custody and Parenting Matters: Determinations of which parent will be awarded residential custody or if perhaps a 50 / 50 custody arrangement is appropriate.
- Child support: Determination of the amount of a non-custodial parent’s support obligation including issues of determining the proper amount (and imputation) of income attributable to each party.
- Distribution of Property: The decision as to whether property is going to be liquidated or granted to one spouse and how each is to be compensated.
- Distribution of Debt and Student Loans: Parties may be liable for the debts and loans accrued by the other party.
- Spousal support and maintenance: Determination of both the duration and the amount of support a greater monied spouse must provide to the lesser monied spouse, including issues of determining the proper amount (and imputation) of income attributable to each party.
