If you and your spouse can work together to create a mutually agreeable divorce settlement, then you stand a great chance of saving yourselves time and money by having an uncontested divorce in Brooklyn.
The costs for this approach to divorce are very low – usually in the hundreds of dollars – and in some cases couples that have no assets or kids can simply file on their own.
Where there are more complicated issues to address – property distribution, maintenance, or child custody and support matters – we strongly advise that both spouses have an attorney available to review the settlement before it’s filed.
An incomplete or improperly drafted petition can be rejected by the court, and the financial ramifications of the choices you make in the settlement can be long lasting.
At Zelenitz, Shapiro & D’Agostino, we understand that not every divorce requires an army of lawyers, and that many couples are able to come to terms on their own.
We can act as a second set of eyes to provide document review and answer your questions at rates that won’t break the bank.
