How long does it take for a judge to sign off on divorce papers?

Q: I live in California, but I was married to this woman that lives in New York. We been sperated for over 5 years. I signed the first divorce papers, but since I didn’t get them notarized they threw them out. Now I made sure everything is notarized and signed right I just want to know how long it will take for the judge to sign them? We don’t want anything from each other, no money, we have no house together, no children together. Just a plan divorce.

A: It depends on the county where the divorce is pending – some counties take longer than others. For example, Bronx county takes approximately 5-8+ months for the Court to sign the Judgment. Call a Bronx Family Law attorney for more info.
