You’re wondering “How long will my uncontested divorce take in New York?”

Good question.

Fast NY Divorce – Expedited Service

Our law firm has developed an Expedited Process for handling your divorce that gets you your divorce lightning fast.

During our initial free phone consultation I will assess your unique case and let you know how long it will take to complete using our Expedited Process.

If you qualify for our Expedited Process, then your divorce usually will be completed in as fast as only 3 – 4 weeks!

Our Expedited Process uses tricks we’ve learned over the years to get you your divorce as soon as legally possible in New York.

So if you’re asking, “How Long Does an Uncontested Divorce Take in New York?” my answer’s that we can get it done for you in just 3 – 4 weeks!

Yeah, I’ve heard horror stories about places that claim they can get you your divorce the same day.  Unfortunately, at the end you may end up not being legally divorced.

Trying to do your divorce yourself, while certainly possible, will almost always take longer because dealing with the courts is never easy or obvious for non-professionals.

Our Expedited Service has a proven track record — we have been getting the fastest possible divorces for our clients for years.

Call (866) 830-2064 now to schedule your free, no obligation, divorce consultation to learn how you too can get a lightning fast divorce.

    Can we hire one lawyer for both of us?
    I guess if we agree on most of things we could just have one to draft all paperwork?

    It is often surprising how these basic questions become so difficult to answer. Clearly, how long an uncontested divorce takes in the State of New York is something virtually anybody filing for divorce must ask. You did a good job breaking down the question into its constituent parts. I for one won’t ask you to take out your crystal ball.

    Uncontested divorce is simple and inexpensive, and it offers you and your spouse the chance to end your marriage quietly.

    As long as you are both in agreement, only one lawyer would be required. Although, as per the ethics rules we can only technically represent one of you. But again, as long as you’re both in agreement, we would be the only attorney required.

    can one of the spouses go back on the uncontested divorce after the agreement is reached, signed by both and notarized, and the case is already filed in court?

  8. David Centeno
    David Centeno says:

    @Ninochka – Yes, we can still help you get a fast divorce even if your spouse lives in a foreign country. He will just need to sign the documents at the US Embassy or Consulate in Argentina. Please let me know if we can assist you with obtaining a fast divorce.

    David Centeno says:

    @sam – Yes, until the Judgment is signed by the Judge your spouse can certainly “go back on the uncontested divorce.”

    David Centeno says:

    @Bob – that all depends upon whether the paperwork is correct and the court backlog… Usually 2 weeks to 6 months.
