Question #55: How long is the process of divorce in ny city? What are the costs? Can divorce been done without a lawyer?

The process can take anywhere from a few months to years depending on the cooperation of the parties, the compexity of the outstanding issues to be resolved between them, and the experience of the attorneys involved. I strongly recommend you consider mediating your divorce, which will be quicker, cheaper, and less emotionally straining than a litigated divorce. The costs will be a function of how long it takes us to resolve all of the outstanding issues such as child custody, child support, spousal maintenance, division of marital assets, etc. Many of the issues are quite complex and you should not think of getting a divorce and entering into a Separation Agreement without experienced legal counsel.
