Protecting Your Rights During Your Uncontested Divorce:

Many clients who enter our Long Island Divorce and Family Law firm seeking an Uncontested Divorce are concerned are concerned that their rights are not being protected because there are no Court Conferences or Trials or Hearings. This is simply not the case. While there are no Court appearances, your rights are still being protected during your Uncontested Divorce.

New York State Sets Guidelines 

The New York State Legislature, in an attempt to ensure that no party is taken advantage of, passed certain statutory guidelines with regards to maintenance, child support and equitable distribution so that parties would be aware of what they are entitled to under the law. As an experienced Long Island Divorce Law Firm, we have spent years ensuring that all our clients receive what they are entitled to under New York State Law. When specifically dealing with Uncontested Divorces, it is typical to have an arrangement in which each spouse walks away with what they brought into the marriage. This scenario may or may not meet the guidelines, which you are free to deviate from if both you and your spouse agree, but is typically a highly sought-after result.

In our Long Island Family Law firm,, we have spent many years helping our clients to reach an amicable and favorable Uncontested Divorce Agreement. In our many years of practice, we have helped countless clients do just that, while protecting what they have worked so hard for.

A Better Post-Divorce Relationship

While involved in your Uncontested Divorce, it may be challenging to look forward and see past this tumultuous time in your life. It is important to remember, however, that just because you will be divorced from your spouse, does not mean that he or she will be out of your life completely. This is especially true if you have children together.

Uncontested Divorce More Likely to Enable an Amicable Split

By its nature, an Uncontested Divorce allows the parties to dissolve their marriage in one of the most amicable ways available. Parties are willing to cooperate and reach an amicable agreement so that the infamous arguing and elongated process of a Contested Divorce does not occur. In avoiding the argumentative nature of a Contested Divorce, the parties are able to complete their divorce in a manner that sets them up for a successful post-divorce relationship. The cooperative and communicative nature of the Uncontested Divorce lends itself to those same qualities being seen in the post-divorce relationship.

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!!
