How long does it take to get divorced?

When a couple comes to the difficult decision that their marriage is no longer working, they may decide that it is time to get divorced. Of course, there are a lot of uncertainties when it comes to getting divorced because a lot of people have never been through a legal process like this before. Even those who have previously gone through a divorce may have questions because as the times change, so do the laws related to divorce. One of the biggest questions that people have is regarding how long it will take to get divorced. It is completely understandable that divorcing couples want to have the divorce finalized as quickly as possible so they can start on the new chapter of their lives.

Answering the question about how long a divorce actually takes is difficult because it entirely depends on the couple’s situation. Similar to the way that all marriages are different, all divorces are different as well. When a couple has a lot of contested issues, their divorce may take a lot longer, especially if they are having a hard time resolving those issues and need the court to step in for them. In addition, couples who go through mediation often have faster divorces than litigated divorces.
