Q: I am filing for divorce in the Bronx and would like to know how long it will take to become finalized. My wife and I have been married for 1 1/2 years now. We both lived in different states and have never moved in together. She lives in Georgia. Our marriage broke down within the 1st 6 months and she dis-communicated me since then onwards. We have no kids and no property to divide. I am confident that she will not contest as we both want to move on with our lives.
A:David’s Answer: It depends on what “papers” you’re taking about – the summons versus the judgment package. It takes about 1 year from the summons filing, about 8 months or so from the judgment package filing.
