Contested Divorce
When spouses are unable to agree on child custody and financial issues, they may find it necessary to resolve those issues in litigation. The Salant lawyers know how to represent the best interests of a client during a contested divorce from beginning to end.

In October 2010, New York become the final state in the U.S. to allow no-fault divorces. Now, a New York divorce can be granted if one party swears that there has been an irretrievable breakdown of the marriage for a period of at least six months. The parties continue to have the option of alleging and proving one of the other five grounds listed in the Domestic Relations Law:

  1. Cruel and inhuman treatment
  2. Adultery
  3. Abandonment for at least one year, including constructive abandonment
  4. Incarceration for at least three consecutive years
  5. Living separate and apart pursuant to a separation agreement for at least one year

Uncontested Divorce
When both parties agree on divorce, child custody, child support, spousal support, and division of marital property, they can move forward quickly to dissolve their marriage. An uncontested divorce is less expensive and less time-consuming than a contested proceeding. Gregory Salant is an uncontested divorce attorney in Westchester who frequently assists clients by preparing uncontested divorce agreements and finalizing all necessary divorce papers throughout Westchester County, Putnam County, Rockland County, Dutchess County, and NYC.
