I need a lawyer for an uncontested divorce.

Asked about 1 year ago - New York, NY

No property or children involved. Paying a one time lump sum to the spouse as an agreement that needs to be stated on the divorce papers and also state all previous contracts are null and void and that the husband holds no further liabilities.

    Answered . You can use the 'find a lawyer' function on this site to locate a few lawyers in your area. You don't have to hire the first person you talk to. Make a few appointments and see who you feel comfortable with. Many lawyers will offer free or cheap initial consultations, so there's no reason not to.

    Note that lawyers are explicitly prohibited from soliciting business in our answers here. (Some do it anyway, but we're not supposed to.) You'll have to take some initiative, contact a few people, and see who seem trustworthy and affordable. An uncontested divorce shouldn't be that expensive.
