THE NEW YORK DIVORCE PROCESS:

BASIC STEPS AND QUESTIONS TO DISCUSS WITH YOUR DIVORCE ATTORNEY

It is important to know the stages of divorce that you need to begin thinking about as you approach a New York divorce. The best way to learn is to contact RAPAPORT LAW FIRM to find out exactly how your divorce strategy will work. There are questions that you need to consider before you retain a divorce lawyer. There are some general steps that most divorcing couples in New York go through.

For obvious reasons, it is preferable if your spouse will sign an Affidavit of Defendant form. First, this is the best indication that your case will actually be uncontested, because the Affidavit of Defendant form typically contains language acknowledging that you have mutually resolved all ancillary (financial) issues. Second, once the Affidavit of Defendant has been signed, you can proceed immediately with the filing of the rest of the papers needed to obtain a judgment of divorce. Without a signed Affidavit of Defendant, you must wait for your spouse to default. Even worse, your spouse might file an answer to the divorce complaint, which signifies that you are facing a contested divorce proceeding.

At this point, you may not be sure about which divorce lawyer to hire, or whether you should hire a lawyer at all. Even simple cases can benefit from a lawyer's help. Together, our lawyers have more than 30 years of experience representing clients in divorces of all kinds.
