Yes. The delays have multiplied because of budget cuts that have dramatically affected the New York State court system. Also, here in Westchester, two of the four judges who handle matrimonial cases are newly assigned - and that can produce slower processing times as well.
Westchester is actually much better than many counties. In Queens the processing time for an uncontested divorce is now somewhere between eight months and a year.
Under the rules governing the conduct of attorneys in New York it may be necessary to remind you that this answer could be considered attorney advertising.
I always tell my clients that it takes about 3-4 months to get a judgment signed in Westchester - but that's from when everything is submitted, including the settlement (or cross-affidavits on a simple uncontested) & proposed judgment of divorce. Assuming it took a month or so to get everything together, you're looking at September or October for the judgment to be signed.
