  • How do I get a divorce from someone I haven't seen for 40 years?

    I'm not sure where he lives now (but most likely in CA). I don't want to contact him.

    Daniel’s Answer

    As mentioned by the other attorneys, you will need to locate him (you may want to start with a skip-trace search). If you cannot, with due diligence, locate him then you will need to make an application for alternate service and request service by publication (or even Facebook if available). There are affordable options but this will require attorney assistance if you want to avoid the process dragging out for years.

  • Uncontested Divorce

    Looking for an attorney who can do an uncontested divorce. We are only married a month and its been the worst month of my life. Need to know all fees and prices.

    Daniel’s Answer

    Firstly, I'm sorry for what you are going through. Regarding your inquiry, unless there have been acts of cruelty against you or adultery was committed it seems that you will need to wait until you have been married for more than 6 months before you can proceed with a divorce. There are affordable options available for an uncontested divorce but please speak with an attorney so you may be advised properly.

  • Is there an "expedite" service for uncontested divorce n NY?

    I saw few lawyers offering an "expedite" service for uncontested divorce in NY. They can have your uncontested divorce signed in about 30 days while it usually takes 6-7 months. Is that real or just a scam?

    Daniel’s Answer

    Expedited divorces are simply cases filed upstate NY in counties which allow filings under CPLR Sec. 509. Not all counties permit out of venue filings but many do. Be sure that you deal with a firm that has a track record of processing these types of expediting cases.

  • I'm getting a divorce. My question is do I just need to fill out uncontested papers at this point and file?

    The only issues are child support and visitation which are being settled by the courts. Once those issues are settled I just need to file uncontested papers? Correct?

    Daniel’s Answer

    Once all family court issues have been resolved you may proceed with an uncontested divorce. You will need to be careful to address the family court orders throughout the paperwork so that the Court continues existing Orders. That said, I would not recommend attempting to prepare the divorce on your own - you will quickly find yourself overwhelmed and in unfamiliar territory. Seek the guidance of an attorney.

    We have both agreed to an agreement & want to file for divorce. We need to know where to go so that it will not cost that much money.

    Daniel’s Answer

    If you and your spouse agree on the relevant terms, you can have an attorney prepare your uncontested divorce as well as a marital settlement agreement for less than a thousand dollars. An uncontested divorce should generally not cost thousands of dollars.
