Question: I AM TRYING TO GET A DIVORCE....HOW LONG DOES THIS PROCESS TAKE?

Answer: The length of time it takes to finalize a divorce depends on multiple factors.  If there are no children involved and if you and your spouse can agree on how to divide property and debts, you can get from petition to default hearing in a few months.  If there are contested issues or disagreements over child custody and child support, it will take a lot longer.  Your question does not include information about your circumstances and possible areas of disagreement.
