Q How Long Does it Take to Get a Divorce?
If the parties are in agreement, a divorce proceeding can be finalized soon after the 60 day waiting period is over. If the parties are not in agreement, the time it takes will depend on the court's schedule and the complexity of the case.
From start to finish, the divorce process may go through a number of phases which might include temporary orders, exchange of financial information, psychological evaluations (in custody cases), alternative dispute resolution, trial, and appeal. A divorce in which the parties are not in agreement on some or all issues will usually take at least several months.
