How Much Does a Divorce in New York Cost?

There are two types of divorces in New York State: contested and uncontested.


A divorce is contested when you and your spouse do not agree on some, most or any part of the divorce. You might be arguing about property division, child custody, child support, alimony, or other issues. If you and your spouse cannot agree on the terms of the divorce, you must go to court and ask a judge to make the needed decisions.
