A contested divorce is a divorce in which parties disagree on one or more issue(s) such as property division, child custody, visitation, or maintenance. Many contested divorces go to trial, prior to which a judge may encourage a settlement. We at the Law Office of Catherine May Co, P.C., attempt to identify the points of disagreement from the beginning, which can help to condense and abridge the marital dissolution process.
In an uncontested divorce, parties reach an agreement on most if not all divorce-related issues. Parties often attend mediation to resolve and outstanding issues and points of contention. Uncontested divorces tend to be significantly briefer in duration than contested divorces.

In October 2010, the State of New York notably changed its laws with respect to marital dissolution. Prior to the amendment, the Plaintiff in a dissolution of marriage proceeding was required to set forth appropriate grounds for divorce before the Court. Today, however, the above-referenced “grounds” requirement has been abandoned, in favor of a divorce scenario which permits neither party at fault.
