  • We separated in March '12. We never made it legal. Can we still file for an uncontested divorce without being legally separated?

    We have been living separate for over a year. We never filed a legal separation. Can we still file for a uncontested divorce without being legally separated? Everything has been divided - we have nothing left to fight over. So how can we file now?

    Daniel’s Answer

    Yes. There is no waiting period required, As long as you have been married for greater than 6 months you may file an action for divorce without having being legally separated.

    My husband and I own a home together and he moved out almost two years ago. Neither of us has 5000 dollars available.

    Daniel’s Answer

    As long as both parties can agree on the terms of the divorce an uncontested divorce should not cost you more than $1,000-$1,500 (depending on your situation) in legal fees and court fees.

    As long as he is willing to cooperate its as simple as forwarding an affidavit for him to sign. The only requirement is that he have it notarized at an embassy or consulate as the court will not accept an acknowledgment from a foreign notary.

    Please clarify? If he has signed a defendant's affidavit submitting to the divorce then you will not need anything further. If he has not done so he will need to be served by some method - be it personal service or alternate service (if he has vanished altogether) before you may proceed to finalize the divorce.

  • Are the divorce processes in the city still taking a bit longer than usual or is it back to the way it was the normal time?

    I will be getting married in July and i hope my divorce is processed by then.

    Daniel’s Answer

    As described, NY county will typically take anywhere from 3-6 months to process a divorce. If you are getting married in July filing in NY county would not be a great option. Contact our offices about our 30-day expedited divorce. This option would ensure your divorce is final in June.

  • How could i speed up my divorce process if its an emergency matter?

    And is the process difficult? And proximately how long will it take ?

    Daniel’s Answer

    Depending on your emergency situation you have the option to make an application for a preference order - in NY county you will need a very significant reason before the court will expedite your case. Our offices offer a second option to expedite your divorce which may be substantially more effective if you basis for exepditing does not fall within those normally accepted by the court. Contact our offices for more information.
