An Uncontested Divorce is one in which there are no outstanding issues between the parties. All the issues which would cause contention are settled between you, and if they aren’t you and your spouse are able to resolve these issues without court intervention. These issues are those such as child support and visitation, spousal maintenance (aka alimony), equitable distribution, retirement benefits and health insurance . If this is the case, then you and your spouse are engaged in an Uncontested Divorce. It is important to note that Uncontested Divorce is a very narrow category of divorces and most couples will not fit neatly into this category.


Legal Documents That Must Be Filed

In order to complete your Uncontested Divorce, certain documents will need to be filed with the court in the county in which you reside. This is where your Long Island Divorce Attorney comes into play. We will assist you in formalizing your agreement with your spouse. If you and your spouse have been able to amicably resolve all conflicts up to that point, the finalizing of your agreement should go smoothly. This agreement typically comes in the form of a Stipulation of Settlement. At our divorce law firm, we draft the Stipulation for you. You and your spouse will then review any issues that have not been expressly ironed out between the two of you will be dealt with at this time. When both you and your spouse are satisfied with the Stipulation, you will come into the office and sign the Stipulation.


Proper Documentation Creates Happier Post Divorce Life

When both parties have signed off on the Stipulation of Settlement, it will get submitted to the Court, along with a Submission Packet. Again, these documents will be drafted and completed by our office, efficiently and correctly. Having an experienced Long Island Divorce Attorney assist you in getting those documents to the county clerk can make all the difference.  A divorce is not something that should be dragged on. When these documents are drafted correctly and submitted in a timely fashion, you are able to move on to your post-divorce life that much sooner.

I went to see Rob for a modification for my child custody agreement to relocate, I can honestly say that working with Rob and Christine has been the best experience. I cannot recommend them enough I only wish I had seen them sooner. They are prompt with communication, and they are honest which I appreciate so much. They do not give you fake promises and they do their best to fight for what you want which they do amazingly well! You can tell they are passionate about what they do and care about their clients. A very important aspect of lawyer client relationship for me is an open line of communication, the anxiety of the unknown always gets the best of us. The fact they were always available whether it be phone call or email to answer any question was extremely comforting and exactly what I needed. I am not well versed with laws and regulation so knowing I had Rob and his partners there when I was unsure or conflicted was extremely needed and greatly appreciated.When it comes to family court it's never easy but having Rob and his partner by my side I felt extremely comfortable and he helped me have realistic expectations. Please TRUST HIM!! If you're looking for a lawyer (at least for my end from child custody/Family Court) don't look any further you will not be disappointed. I hope to never have to use them again but in the event I have to, they are going to be my forever first call.


  • I have known Robert for more than 8 eight years. Robert has represented many of my family and friends. Each and every one has raved about Robert’s professionalism and expertise. He is knowledgable, friendly and truly cares about his clients. I would not hesitate to continue to refer Robert and his firm in the future!
  • I’ve known Robert for most of my life, and feel very fortunate that I have been able to turn to a good friend for various kinds of legal advice. He is very intelligent, straight forward, and professional. Most importantly though, Robert always finds the fastest resolution, and will not waste your time or money. He is NOT in the habit of dragging things through litigation if there is no need for the added expense. I have referred a few of my friends to Robert, and they have all been more than satisfied in their experience with him. Highly recommend!!
