  • What are the requirements to file for divorce in New York?
    To file for divorce in New York, you must have lived in the state for at least two years. For couples who got married in New York, they can file for divorce if they have lived in the state for the last year.
  • How long does divorce take in New York?

    It depends on how complex your case is and how cooperative you and your spouse are. In New York, an uncontested divorce will usually take at least 4 to 12 weeks to finalize.

    If you are filing a contested divorce, then the divorce may take considerably longer. On average, contested divorces end up taking around 9 months up to a year.

    Remember, the longer your divorce takes, costs can add up and parties can become increasingly hostile. It is always a good idea to resolve your divorce quickly and efficiently.
