Brooklyn Uncontested Divorce Attorney
Tough Negotiations Lead to Smart Settlements
It's hard for New Yorkers to believe that such a thing as uncontested
divorce exists. Can a couple really settle all aspects of their divorce
without going to court for a ruling on property, custody, support, or
any of the other contentious issues? The answer is yes. With the right
guidance, you can present to the court a signed settlement agreement explaining
exactly what you want from your divorce judgment, and ask the court to
sign off on it. Of course, that agreement can only be as good as the advice
you get to craft it.
For almost 50 years, Coffinas & Lusthaus, P.C. has combined tough negotiation
strategies and creative problem-solving to craft fair, comprehensive settlement
agreements that win court approval and prove to be workable in our clients'
daily lives. Our
Brooklyn divorce attorneys can help you and your spouse move past objections and obstacles to save
the time, stress and expense of court litigation.

Saving Time & Expense with Uncontested Divorce
Asking the court to rule on each and every issue of your divorce drags
out proceedings and runs up costs. The goal of uncontested divorce is
to get the spouses to agree on every issue and present their agreement
to the court, so the judge only has to approve the document and use it
as the basis of the court's order.
When this happens, you:
- Save the time of court proceedings
- Save on attorney fees and other expenses for court proceedings
- Save yourself the stress of having to make court appearances
- Assert control over your destiny rather than leaving decisions about your
money and children up to a judge you have never met before
In some cases, when both parties agree the marriage is over, Coffinas &
Lusthaus, P.C. can even help you reach an uncontested divorce settlement
before either party files.
Brooklyn Divorce Lawyers Protecting Your Rights and Privacy
Many parties to divorce don't want to air their disputes in open court
or be at the mercy of a judge they have never met before, but they also
don't want to give ground on issues that matter to them simply to
reach agreement. Coffinas & Lusthaus, P.C. balances these concerns
with tough, principled negotiations in confidential settings that protect
both parties' privacy. We have enough trial experience to advise how
a court would likely rule on any particular issue, so we never put our
clients in a position of unknowingly accepting less via settlement than
they could get through litigation.
Why should I have an attorney for an uncontested divorce?
Uncontested divorce works when couples still trust each other enough to
communicate and negotiate in good faith. Nevertheless, sitting down at
the kitchen table and drawing up your own divorce settlement, or trusting
your spouse's attorney to draw up the agreement, is never a good idea.
Your divorce judgment will be permanent and have the force of law. You
have to make sure that your interests are represented throughout the process.
Don't think that when the agreement proves unfair or unworkable, you
can go into court and get a modification. Courts loathe making changes
or letting you out of a properly executed agreement unless you can show
fraud or duress or mistake of fact. Whatever you imagine you'll save
in creating your settlement agreement without an attorney, you will pay
for with a problematic divorce judgment.
