Can I Get A Divorce In Queens If My Spouse Is In Prison?

Yes, when your spouse is incarcerated you may find that there are some logistical hurdles that you wouldn’t otherwise face, but divorce is an option for you.

Depending on whether your spouse is in a New York State prison or the federal system, you may experience some delays in serving your spouse with divorce papers, and if the matter becomes contested, your divorce may take much longer than it would otherwise.
