Q: I have filed for divorce recently in nyc. I live in Bronx and I was wondering how long will it take for the papers to get processed. The divorce is uncontested, no property, no children. I know that it should go to the judge and than depends on how much is the backlog in the clerk office. Can anyone tell me an estimate cause I want to marry my girlfriend as soon as possible after this process ends.
A: David’s Answer: In my humble experience, cases take longer to process in the Bronx than many other boroughs or counties. I usually tell clients its about 6-8 months from when the full judgment package has been submitted, and thus the total process from beginning to end is approximately 8-12 months for a typical uncontested.
