  • How long does it take for a divorce to be final?Going through a divorce can be an incredibly challenging and often painful experience. This means that most people just want to get the divorce proceedings over with as quickly as possible so that they can start moving on with their new life. Unfortunately, divorce can often be a lengthy process – and our Queens divorce lawyer can help you finalize the divorce as soon as possible.
  • Even in the best case scenario, you will likely have to wait at least a few months before the final divorce decree is issued. On the other hand, a particularly messy divorce could take as long as two or three years to be finalized. For this reason, it is important to look at the factors that affect the speed of divorce proceedings in order to give you a better estimate of how long you can reasonably expect to wait.
  • Contested vs. Uncontested Divorces
    In an uncontested divorce, both parties agree to the terms of the divorce judgment before filing the divorce papers. By agreeing on custody, division of marital assets, alimony and other important issues, couples can greatly speed up the divorce process and may be able to have the final divorce decree issued within a few months.
  • However, if the two parties cannot reach a prior agreement and one or both parties contests the terms of the divorce, the process can end up taking much longer. With this type of contested divorce, the spouses and their attorneys will usually go through the process of mediation in an effort to come to an amicable agreement. In this sense, the quicker you can come to an agreement, the sooner your case can move from a contested to an uncontested divorce and thus be finalized.
  • The majority of contested divorces are usually settled during mediation. Nonetheless, if you and your spouse are still unable to reach an agreement, you will then need to attend a final hearing where the judge will decide issues such as custody and division of assets for you.
  • In actuality, all divorces must go through a final hearing. However, this hearing is merely a formality when the couple has already reached an agreement. That being said, you will always have to wait until the responsible judge can fit your hearing into their schedule before your divorce can be finalized.
  • Be Prepared to Be Patient
    No matter what you do, there is not much that can actually speed up the time your divorce proceedings take. Both parties are always afforded adequate time to respond and prepare for the proceedings, which means that your spouse being slow or refusing to cooperate could slow things down.
  • Although divorce laws vary by state, you will first be required to serve your spouse with divorce papers. Should your spouse suddenly make themselves unavailable and thus unable to be served, you will have to wait until the process server tracks them down before the clock can start ticking. Once your spouse has been served, they are usually given around 20 to 30 days in order to respond to the petition. After this period, contested divorces must then go through financial disclosure and discovery, which generally takes up to 90 days.
  • All of these factors can quickly add up to a huge amount of time. If you’re lucky enough for your spouse not to contest the divorce, you may be able to speed things up a bit. However, in most cases, you should be prepared to wait at least three or four months before you can finally call yourself single again.
  • Founding partner Todd Spodek personally feels responsible for the outcome of each and every client. Todd, a well known NYC and Long Island divorce attorney, is personally involved in each and every client’s case at the Spodek Law Group. In his practice, he works tirelessly with our team to get our clients the best outcome possible.
