How Long Does It Take to Get a Divorce?

A question that we are often asked by potential clients, and also our current clients, is “How long will it take till I am divorced?” There unfortunately is no clear answer to this question. However, if you and your spouse have executed that resolves all issues pended between the two of you, and you do not have children together, you can file for divorce immediately. After you file for divorce, you may be able to be divorced within two to three months of the date of your filing.

If you and your spouse have executed an agreement that resolves all issues between the two of you, however, you have children together, you have to wait at least a year before you file for divorce. But then once you file, since you have an agreement, the divorce process may take maybe two to three months before you’re finally divorced.

If you and your spouse do not have an agreement, your divorce matter could take maybe one to two years depending upon the circumstances in your matter. Please free to contact our office so that we can set up a consultation to personally discuss the specific circumstances in your matter.
