I had a lot of anxiety about filling out the paperwork myself to the point where I put it off for almost 5 years. I found this site and it made everything so easy. I had to call customer service about a couple of questions I didn't know how to answer and they were informative and helpful.

How long does it take to get a divorce in New York

How long does it take to get a divorce in New York

Naturally, the duration of a divorce in New York State directly depends on the type of divorce. So, for example, if we are talking about an uncontested divorce, then on average, it takes up to three months. On the other hand, if we are talking about contested divorce, it can last nine months or longer, depending on the nature of the dispute.

As for the waiting period, once the petitioner has filed for divorce in New York, there is no official waiting period before the judge finalizes the case.

The time a couple spends filing for a divorce depends on two things: the court’s workload and how quickly the defendant can return the necessary copies of the documents to the applicant. This is why some uncontested divorces end in five or six weeks, while others can take up to six months.

Since there is no waiting period in New York State, an uncontested divorce takes about three months on average. But, of course, if there are issues on which the parties disagree, this can make the divorce process longer.
