    As the others have noted, there isn't an "instant divorce" New York - there is both an uncontested divorce or a contested divorce (where court intervention is required). It will take about 3-7 mos. for the divorce to be finalized once the court receives the uncontested divorce packet. I suggest hiring a process server to ensure the Defendant is properly served. At that point, perhaps mediation can be used to help facilitate the divorce process.

    I agree with the above answers although I would add that an attorney in NY who is not licensed in CT could draft a Will under the supervision of a CT licensed attorney. For example, I am licensed in CT so I could review work done by a NY licensed attorney to ensure it complies with CT law.
