Question #111

It depends on which county one is filing in. In NYC, the wait is about three months after all of the papers are properly prepared and filed in an uncontested divorce. In Westchester and Nassau, it is usually signed
by the judge within a month and in Rockland within a few weeks.

If you are considering divorce and live in the NYC metro area, please call me to discuss mediating your divorce. I can help.

Question #35

To accurately answer your question, I would have to see the separation agreement that you signed when you initially got divorced and the judgment of divorce from the court.

Concerning the custody issue, your concern about splitting the brothers is serious, and you may be able to convince the court that they both should be transferred to you if you so wish. Your acts would then be required to provide you with child-support equaling approximately 25 percent of her income. In the event, each one retains one of the children, and the child support would be canceled out unless one child has special needs that require more funds. Remember, if you get the older child, your child, that child will reach emancipation for years before the other child.

If you question the bona fides of the after school child expenses, I suggest you demand that she send you invoices for such services from the people providing the after school service, unless your separation agreement or a court order provides otherwise.

Question #65

The time frame is not the determining factor. It is the “grounds.”
that must be proven to get an annulment.

You will need to prove such grounds as underage, bigamy, fraud, etc.

Question #67

He is just trying to scare you. He cannot annul the marriage or divorce you without your being served with a Summons and Complaint. If he tries to do it without notifying you, you can have it reversed.

He can sue you for an annulment, but it is up to a judge to grant him his request, and the judge will want to hear your side of the story before he makes a decision.

If you are living in the NYC metro area, please call me to discuss mediating your annulment.
