This question really depends on both the attorneys and the clients. Often times, we can resolve both parties issues in a matter of months if there aren’t any children involved, and spousal support isn’t something that neither party is considering. If both parties are simply looking to divide their property and debts, this can typically get done rather quickly through mediation.
More complex issues such as disputes over custody, child support, division of property, and spousal support can stretch out over months or even years. If mediation doesn’t work, going to court and going through the legal process adds a lot of time to a divorce. If you have to go to court to try every issue, it can typically take over a year to completely finish your divorce.
