A: Family law in New York does not require any minimum waiting period before a divorce can be finalized. However, this in no way guarantees that your divorce will be handled in a short period of time. While an uncontested divorce may be completed in as little as three months, if any of the issues, such as child custody, are contested, even working with an experienced Commack, NY custody lawyer, a trial may be required, which could drag on in court for over a year.
As far as how much money you could potentially pay for your divorce, the cost completely depends on how many issues you and your spouse were able to agree upon when dividing your finances and custody of your children. The average total cost of a divorce in California is about $17,100, including fees paid to your Commack, NY divorce attorney.
