How Long Does A Divorce Take?

Picture of a couple having an argument on a park bench.

There’s no set-in-stone timeline for divorce. Divorces can happen in as quickly as a month, or they can last years. It all depends on your situation and these factors have to be considered:

  • Is the divorce mutual, meaning both spouses want it to happen?
  • Is the situation amicable? Meaning you’re able to be in the same room without fighting.
  • Do both you and your spouse agree on what’s “fair” in the division of property?
  • Do you have children? If so, do you and your spouse agree on custody and visitation specifics?

These are only a few things that determine the length of a divorce. Ultimately, one of the biggest factors is whether your divorce is uncontested or contested.

Uncontested Divorces Tend To Go Quicker Than Contested Divorces

Every divorce is different, but usually, an uncontested divorce goes faster than a contested divorce. If you and your husband or wife can agree on property division, custody, and other factors on your own, then the chances are better that your divorce will go smoothly. In addition, an uncontested divorce will be less stressful and cheaper.

Uncontested divorces are the ideal outcome, but the reality is often the opposite. Maybe you and your spouse don’t see eye to eye on what’s a “fair” agreement. If this is the case, you’re more likely looking at a contested divorce, which could end up being stressful while taking a lot longer to complete. It’s unfortunate, but a very possible outcome.

No matter what your situation, you need to work with an attorney who’s experienced in both contested and uncontested divorces.
