Uncontested divorces in Brooklyn generally take less time, and cost less money, than contested ones, but you should still expect that the process will take several months.
If you and your spouse have developed a settlement agreement between yourselves, you may feel like you’re good to go with submitting the plan to the court, but it’s still important that both of you consult attorneys for a second glance.
The judge will want to see a completed agreement that deals with issues of property division, child custody and support agreements, and ongoing support as needed.
If the settlement is incomplete, or the agreement appears too lopsided in one spouse’s favor, you run the risk of having your settlement rejected and having to start over.
An attorney can ensure that you’ve thoroughly worked through the relevant issues and are filing a complete and fair agreement with the court.
