How long does it take to get a divorce?

How long it takes to get a divorce depends on a number of things, including:

1. Your grounds for divorce.
2. Where you live, where your spouse lives or works, and where you file suit.
3. The number of disputed issues in your case.

If you have a contested case, with no custody issues, on average it takes a minimum of twelve months from the date you first filed to obtain an absolute divorce.
