Is My Queens Divorce Effective From The Date I Filed, Or The Date The Decree Is Issued By The Judge?

Your divorce in Queens will be in effect once you have received your Judgment of Divorce from your divorce judge in Queens.

Filing for divorce does not, in and of itself, change your legal condition as a married person in New York, and it is illegal to begin a new marriage prior to the legal dissolution of the current one.

This is achieved through the Judgment of Divorce that is issued when your divorce settlement is complete, either through negotiation or litigation.
Many people end up in situations where their spouse has been delaying the progress of their divorce, and their attorney isn’t being proactive in advancing their case.

If that’s where you find your divorce, and your attorney isn’t being effective at wrapping it up, consider a new lawyer.

At Zelenitz, Shapiro & D’Agostino, we know how important it is for people to complete the process of divorce and get on with their life.

We offer free consultations to everyone who wants to explore their options in moving their divorce forward.
