You’re divorced once the judge issues the Judgment of Divorce in Brooklyn, not as of the date you filed for divorce.
The time between filing and receipt of your Judgment may be quite long, depending on how your divorce plays out, and this can be extremely frustrating for even the most patient person.
Stories of divorces that drag on for years are not unheard of, and lengthy wait times between the submission of a negotiated settlement and receipt of your Judgment of Divorce are very common.
