There is no waiting period if you've been married for greater than 6 months. A separation agreement is not required. The time-frame will depend on where in NY you reside. In NYC, typically 6 months or more. If it is urgent it can be expedited.See question

I'm not sure where he lives now (but most likely in CA). I don't want to contact him.
As mentioned by the other attorneys, you will need to locate him (you may want to start with a skip-trace search). If you cannot, with due diligence, locate him then you will need to make an application for alternate service and request service by publication (or even Facebook if available). There are affordable options but this will require attorney assistance if you want to avoid the process dragging out for years.See question
Looking for an attorney who can do an uncontested divorce. We are only married a month and its been the worst month of my life. Need to know all fees and prices.
Firstly, I'm sorry for what you are going through. Regarding your inquiry, unless there have been acts of cruelty against you or adultery was committed it seems that you will need to wait until you have been married for more than 6 months before you can proceed with a divorce. There are affordable options available for an uncontested divorce but please speak with an attorney so you may be advised properly.See question

I saw few lawyers offering an "expedite" service for uncontested divorce in NY. They can have your uncontested divorce signed in about 30 days while it usually takes 6-7 months. Is that real or just a scam?
Expedited divorces are simply cases filed upstate NY in counties which allow filings under CPLR Sec. 509. Not all counties permit out of venue filings but many do. Be sure that you deal with a firm that has a track record of processing these types of expediting cases.See question
