As you may know, with COVID-19 the Courts and the Court’s Clerks have been essentially shut down and have been operating only sporadically. This means, that if you filed for divorce before the COVID-19 Pandemic, that your divorce will be delayed.
Each County has been handling their divorce cases slightly differently. Therefore, you need to know how your County is operating. For example, Suffolk County may be able to process your divorce papers faster than Nassau County. Yet, even in Suffolk County, it has been stated that already filed divorces may be delayed for two to four months. In Nassau County, it has been rumored that it may take longer than that.
If you have an attorney, the best thing to do is consult with your attorney. If you filed the papers by yourself, it may be difficult to get information from the court system.
