The Court has built a mandatory waiting period into the divorce process. From the time that you file, you have to wait at least 60 days before the Court can enter the Judgment of Divorce. If there are children involved, that time period is a minimum of 6 months. For most people, with uncontested divorce cases, this is exactly how long it will take. The process can end up taking a lot longer if people cannot get a long, resulting in a contested divorce.
