Contested vs. Uncontested Divorce in New York
There are two main types of divorce in the state of New York: contested and uncontested.

- Uncontested divorce is for spouses who agree on all divorce-related issues. This process is often preferred because there is no need for a trial and therefore, the process is much quicker and more cost-effective than contested divorce.
