Q: We plan to pursue a No-fault divorce in Bronx supreme court and in our situation we have no children and not shared assets/liabilities and no maintenance/spousal support. We only have our individual savings accounts, which we would like to keep to ourselves as we both are employed. In such a situation is it required for us to create a separation/settlement agreement?
Or if we both select No 15 – D. “are not to be incorporated into the Judgment of Divorce, since neither party to the divorce has contested any such issues” in our respective UD-6 & UD-7 forms, will this suffice and not need an agreement?
A: If you’ve already separate out all joint assets (or never had any joint assets to begin with), then you wouldn’t necessarily need an agreement. That said, if there’s going to be a waiver of any disparity between one spouse’s assets versus another’s, then an agreement is advisable. For more, call a Bronx Uncontested Divorce attorney.
