How long will it take to get a Divorce?

How long it takes to get divorced depends primarily on whether you and your spouse can agree on the issues. If you can agree on a comprehensive separation agreement and file together for an uncontested divorce, you should have your final hearing and judgment of divorce within 30 days. If, instead you are not able to agree on how to resolve the issues with your spouse, a contested divorce can take anywhere from 6 months to several years to complete.

If you want your divorce to move forward quickly, we can help you negotiate a fair agreement on the issues. If your spouse is being unreasonable and is not willing to negotiate in good faith, we will help you progress through the contested track quickly through targeted discovery, clear temporary orders, and an expedited trial.
