Q: I saw few lawyers offering an “expedite” service for uncontested divorce in NY. They can have your uncontested divorce signed in about 30 days while it usually takes 6-7 months. Is that real or just a scam?
A: David’s Answer: It would appear this would be highly deceiving – if not outright fraud. Unless there are extraordinary circumstances warranting an emergency judgment, then all counties in NYC take between 3-8+ months for divorce judgments to get signed. Unless they’re bribing court clerks to get their judgments signed faster, then that attorney (assuming it even is an attorney) can’t get their judgment’s signed faster than anyone else. — David Bliven, Bronx Divorce Attorney, (www.Blivenlaw.net)
