Divorce is often a very difficult time marking the end of an era and the start of a drastically new and different chapter in a person’s life. One of the questions that many people have when it comes to divorce is how long the divorce will take. This is often one of the most difficult questions to answer simply because everyone’s situation is different and like no two marriages are the same, no two divorces are the same.

One of the factors that can have an impact on the length of a divorce is the method of divorce that the couple chooses. In a lot of situations, mediated divorces take less time than litigated divorces because the couple does not have to wait around for court dates and can schedule the mediation sessions on their own time. Another factor that determines how long a divorce will take is how willing the couple is to work together and how many contested issues are present in their divorce.

If the couple has an uncontested divorce, the divorce can be over very quickly. On the other hand, if the couple is having a hard time resolving a lot of contested issues, it could take much longer. If you have questions about divorce, contact our firm today.
