How long does a divorce take?

It is very difficult to determine the amount of time it will take without first considering a number of factors. Each case is different.

Transcription of the family lawyer's response: Another common question is: how long does a divorce take? This is a vague question and is too broad and it’s difficult to answer. Why? Because it depends on your case. Each case is different. Each case has paternity issues. Sometimes the custody of each divorce is different. Sometimes people want 50/50, sometimes people want every other weekend. Sometimes people have businesses and sometimes they don’t have any marital property at all. Sometimes they agree to wave alimony and sometimes one of the parties want alimony for life or temporary so it’s a lot of factors that you have to take into consideration in order to see more or less how long is going to take the divorce. Sometimes divorce can be as short as one month if it’s by mutual agreement of both parties and sometimes it can take you anywhere from 6 months to one year. Sometimes more than that. But it depends of your case. And it’s a fact-specific answer.
