WHAT DOES IT TAKE TO GET A DIVORCE - JURISDICTION, GROUNDS

Question #108:
I was wondering how long you have to wait to get married after a divorce in NY state? My boyfriend is in the middle of his divorce. We want to get married as soon as possible. He and his X have been separated since 2000, We met in 2002.

Answer:


The length of time one has to wait depends on the grounds
that one used in order to get the divorce. If one used a written separation agreement as the grounds for the divorce, one would have to wait a year after filing the separation agreement with the county court. If one used cruel and inhuman treatment, for example , one could file for divorce and receive it immediately.
