    I have a friend who is mexican and he wants to divorce his wife, who lives in Mexico. She has ended the relationship a year ago and had asked him for a divorce. He is living over here in NY and were wondering if he can put through the divorce from here. Can you please kindly informe me if is possible to get divorce from here and how long it will take? He does have family and friends who can serve the divorce papers to his wife. Thanks in advance for your help!

    Janet, thank you for your question. In order to accurately answer your question, I would have to know where they were married and how long your friend has resided in New York State.

    He also seems to qualify for an uncontested divorce, which will make his U.S. divorce a lot more affordable than if it was an international contested divorce. Congratulate him for me!

    Hi Mr Centeno. My question is regarding the term ” appearance date” . When i look at the status of my case , the website shows that he case is active and appearance date is april 27,2011. It has been almost 3 weeks since then but still shows same date as an appearance date. It is an uncontested divorce and and my wife defaulted to respond therefore after i waited 40 days , i submitted all papers to the court. How long does it take after the case is brought before Judge? Do i need to take any action because it has been 3 weeks? On the other hand Note of Issue filing date is April 4, 2011. Please let me know as to what i could do . Thanks

  6. Attorney David Centeno
    Attorney David Centeno says:

    Appearance date simply means that it is scheduled to be reviewed at that time. If you filed the Note of Issue on April 4, 2011 you should allow at least 2 months before you start allowing yourself to get antsy. As you probably know, just because you submitted the papers does not mean that it will be approved. There are some differences in the paperwork when the Defendant defaults in appearance. This is why I always recommend using an attorney if possible rather than trying to do it yourself or through a DIY online forms website like “LegalZoom.” If the papers are defective you risk screwing up your entire divorce which can result in lost money, time and not ultimately getting divorced. Furthermore, even the NYS unified Courts Website recommends using an attorney because you may be unknowingly giving up valuable rights or not protecting yourself properly if you try to handle your divorce yourself. With all this said, I wish you all the best.

    My friend is going through the “starting a divorce” phase and we were just shopping around for suggestions and advise. They have been married for over 10 years but have been seperated (not legally) for the past 2 years, going on 3. Also, they have 3 children, one from her previous relationship. His wife has been out of state with the kids for almost 3 years now. He has attempted on bringing them back home by sending her money for their tickets, however she always has some out of the blue reason to spend it on something else. They do not talk like normal husband and wife do. He calls and talks to the kids and she only texts (yes, not call) him on pay days, but other than that, it seems they are both done with each other. So now he wants a divorce. Will he be able to file if she is not int he US with their kids?

    I’ve been looking into divorce in N.Y. and pricing usually comes out to 1400 and divorces take up to 5 months. Today my ex texts me that she has a friend in NJ that can get the divorce done in 45 days for $800. Can this be possible or can it be a scam? I just want to get this over with!!!

    Can you please explain how the divorce laws of New York work in order for a quick/superfast divorce like Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes? Can a regular person get such a quick divorce or is that only for those with the $$$$s?

    Hello, I am in the middle of a divorce and have a court appearance scheduled for July (next month). At this point, we only have child custody/visitation and child support to agree upon. We do not have property, but my ex-husband is requesting spousal support and legal fees. I want this divorce to be uncontested and as fast as possible, but we are already this far in the “contested” mess. Could you still help me??? I need to get things done expeditiously, like yesterday! Please advise.
