How Long Does the Divorce Process Take?
Filing for Divorce in California
No two divorces are the same. The amount of time that it takes to get a divorce hinges on a number of factors.
Are you and your spouse in agreement about your divorce, including matters such as property division,
child custody, and
Uncontested divorce is generally a much faster process since there are no disputes, which means that no trial is necessary. Uncontested cases can take
as little as six months from the date that the divorce petition was served to the other party, as stated in California Family Code § 2339.
Contested divorce cases can be much more complicated and therefore take longer. You will need to litigate issues such as property division,
visitation, and much more. The more disputed these issues are, the longer they take to resolve in court. Some contested divorced take only a few months, but others can take
a year or even several years until they are complete.
