How long will my divorce take?

The timeframe for a divorce is difficult to calculate because it depends on your situation, as well as factors beyond your control. For instance, your spouse may not want the divorce and it is unknown what he or she is willing to agree upon during the process. The degree to which you and your spouse agree on issues and the cooperation between the two of you will dictate how long the process will be. 

If you and your spouse agree on each issue, the process can usually be completed in a few weeks. This is often referred to as “uncontested divorce.”

In contested circumstances, a divorce may take a year or more because the parties must reach an agreement on custody, property division, or other matters specific to your situation, or allow their case to be tried by the Court.
