Before you get too far ahead in your divorce, or of yourself, you should know that you are going to have some questions that need answering right away. Rather than scratching your head and worrying the moment they come up, take a moment to get familiar with a few frequently asked questions about divorce and what our team has to say about them:
How long is my divorce going to take?
This is probably the most frequently asked question out of all divorce FAQs, and understandably so. People want to know when they can begin a new chapter of their life, separate from a spouse they no longer see eye-to-eye with. The answer is that it can take anywhere between a month to a few years, depending on how large your shared marital estate was, and how much the two of you contend the decisions of the other.
I hate going to court – do I need to go for my divorce in New York?
No, but only in certain circumstances. If you are going through an uncontested divorce that seems clear-cut, you can use your lawyer to file all paperwork and attend any court hearings in your stead. Keep in mind that this is a fairly ideal situation. You should not settle for anything less than your best interests just to try to avoid a day in court.
Can my spouse and I cancel a divorce once it has begun?
No one can see the future. If you and your spouse decide to give your marriage another chance, a divorce can be canceled via a dismissal form. This needs to be filed with the county clerk by the petitioner and the other spouse if a response was given.
Do I have to pay spousal and child support?
This heavily depends on your financial situation and that of your ex. If you are in a significantly more-stable spot because of your income, the court may call upon a percentage of it to support your spouse in taken care of themselves and your children. If you have no children, new alimony laws in New York could make the period of time during which you have to pay spousal support considerably short. Ask our divorce attorneys for more information on these legislative changes.
