Should I Expect To Win Anything In A divorce If We’re Both Young, Working, And Child-Free In Brooklyn?

When couples with fairly equal incomes, few assets, and no kids divorce, the process can be extremely simple.

Any jointly owned or marital assets will be subject to equitable distribution, but many people in Brooklyn don’t own cars or their homes, especially when they’re younger and establishing themselves in their careers.

If you and your spouse don’t have substantial assets and your incomes are similar, there may not be anything to win.

This can be a huge advantage in a divorce, where couples can, and sometimes do, fight about assets forever.

Without these flashpoints, you and your spouse may be able to reach a settlement agreement between yourselves, run it past your lawyers to make sure it says and means what you think it does, and then file an uncontested divorce.

This is generally the fastest and most cost-effective type of divorce, so while there may be nothing in particular to “win,” by most standards, a cheap and easy divorce counts as a big victory.
