Is there A Waiting Period for Divorce in New York

In New York, there is a waiting period for divorce known as the "cooling-off" period. This period requires couples to wait a minimum of six months from the date the divorce action is filed before it can be finalized. During this time, couples may attempt to resolve issues such as property division, child custody, and support arrangements. However, uncontested divorces may be finalized more quickly if both parties agree to the terms of the divorce. Legal advice is recommended to navigate the divorce process effectively.
