Nobody ever enters into a marriage thinking that one day their relationship will be over, but the truth of the matter is that approximately half of all marriages in the U.S. now end in divorce. Not only does this bring about a major life change for both parties involved, but unless an agreement is made for an uncontested divorce in Buffalo, NY, dissolving your marriage will involve the stress of multiple court appearances and huge legal bills for a divorce attorney.
The good news is that you can get a cheap divorce if both you and your spouse agree to negotiate the terms without involving the courts.

1. You and your spouse can file an action; this can be done with or without the assistance of a divorce attorney.
