The Judgment of Divorce should have been signed already. First go to the Clerk of the Supreme Court and have them look it up. You can then go to the County Clerk and get a certified copy of the Judgment.

Anything you get from your father is separate property as long as you keep it in an account in your name alone. Anything that goes to your daughter is hers and ideally can only be used for her benefit until she is 18 when it becomes hers. As for custody, based on what you have said, you have a...Read more »

Your wife's testimony that the marriage was irretrievably broken for at least 6 months prior to her signing the complaint is sufficient to establish that ground for divorce. It does not matter if you deny it, her attesting or testifying to that is sufficient.
no kids, cars or house are involved. I am moving out on oct 1st, 2019. I would like to file a no fault divorce for irretrievable breakdown in relationship for a period of at least 6 months. we have been married for 6.5yrs and my husband is not willing to work on us still after all these years.
You don't have to wait at all. You can file at any time, including while you are still living together based upon irretrievable breakdown of the marriage. Either see a lawyer immediately or get a do it yourself packet from your nearest Supreme Court or get all the forms and instructions on line.
I don’t know the first step in divorce. We have been separated for three years, have two kids, no courts involved, no child support. We are civil with one another, work well with our kids and have nothing to share/split from married but our kids.
Unfortunately, you cannot appeal the divorce as you defaulted. You may be able to open the divorce up depending on all the facts. I suggest you bring all the papers and information that you have to an attorney and discuss with him in his office.
My estranged wife who I havent had contact with in or seen in a year filed an order of protection against me. She is using random text messages from june 2018 i sent her.

This is an immigration question and should be directed to an immigration attorney. The only thing that I will say is that the immigration status of your parents will have no affect on child support and maintenance.
Sorry for your situation. You can try to get an annulment of the marriage, get a divorce or stay married. If you opt for a divorce, your husbands debts and loans are marital debts if used for the marriage, if for something else it may be his debt alone, you would have to discuss that with an...Read more »
You can ask your attorney or you can call the county clerk and ask. If it has been finalized, you can send a check to the county clerk and they will send you a copy of the papers. Be sure to ask how much to send as the charge is $1 per page.
He also gaslights me, takes/hides my belongings, tracks my cell phone history (account is under his father’s. I have no access), has told me several times (during/post cancer) he wishes I would die, and is constantly creating financial hardship by spending large amounts of money on various... Read more »
Based upon what you have said, you would have grounds on the basis of fault. However, there is no need to go that route anymore. New York enacted "No Fault" divorce several years ago. All that is necessary to be alleged is that there is an irretrievable breakdown of the marriage for 6 months or...Read more »
The answer to that question depends on what your Judgment of Divorce says and what is in your Stipulation of Settlement. Most often there is a radius clause in agreements that specify how far you can move. In most cases, this precludes a move to another state. The best way to be sure that you...Read more »
She abandoned me gone 5 years, I do not have small children. Now she wants a divorce. If she files out there do I have to fly out there if I decided to contest it? or does she have to come to New York if I file
If one of the parents later refuses to cover the agreed pro rata share of child's college costs, what legal recourse is available to the paying parent? Will the courts uphold the agreement that was ordered and adjudged per the divorce decree?
