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.

At one of the hardest and most stressful times of my life, it was so comforting to have a team at Hornberger and Verbitsky who ALWAYS responded in record speed to my questions, phone calls, emails or texts and who I felt really cared about helping me through this difficult time. It was a long few years and I am grateful to all of you. Thank you so much Rob, AnneMarie, Christine, Patty, Joan and Lawrence. Your guidance, professionalism and expertise is appreciated beyond measure.

I would give 6 stars if I could. I can't say enough good things about Robert and his firm. We were in a situation for over 2 years and I could have never made it through without Robert's experience and knowledge. He guided me through tough times when needed and his expertise could "read" the situation and make the next best move for me. He was tough when he needed to be tough (thankfully) and at the same time guided me through the process to make me feel comfortable in an uncomfortable situation. I would not want to go through this process without Robert and his team having my back. he helped move the case along and not waste any time or money. One last time, I 100% endorse Robert and his expertise.
