One of the first questions that a client who is contemplating a divorce asks an attorney is, “How long does a divorce take?” If you’re planning to get divorced, you’d probably want to do so quickly. After all, no one wants to drag out a costly process, especially if you’re trying to get of toxic marriage, or even one that’s ending amicably. But how long does it really take to get a divorce? The answer depends on a few things, including whether or not both parties agree to all the terms, and how fast the divorce judge can schedule divorce hearings. Divorces are quickest when there are no children involved—and when both parties agree.
