How Long Does it Take to Get A Divorce in New York State?
In New York state, a divorce can take two or three months if the action is uncontested. On the other hand, if it becomes contested, it can take a year, two years or even longer. In very complicated cases where there are substantial assets and appraisals and estimates having to be come on the valuation of different types of assets, that information cannot be had overnight. A divorce proceeding under those circumstances can take a lot longer than anticipated.
