There are so many variables in any Queens divorce that it’s impossible to speak to your situation without more information.
As a general guide, if you and your spouse are able to work together, reach a settlement between yourselves (reviewed by your lawyers), and then file an uncontested divorce in Queens.
You’ll only have to wait for the judge to sign off on your paperwork and mail you a Judgment of Divorce.
This can take a period of weeks to a few months, depending on the court’s calendar.
If you and your spouse can’t reach agreement and have a contested action, then your divorce could last much longer, sometimes as long as a year or more.
However you end up divorcing, you stand to gain considerably when you work with experienced attorneys who understand the divorce process, and the short- and long-term implications of various elements of your divorce settlement.
The attorneys at Zelenitz, Shapiro & D’Agostino can help you get the best deal possible in your divorce.
