A divorce can range from a few months to a few years. In a divorce in which both parties agree they want the divorce, called an uncontested divorce, there is a 90-day cooling off period after which both parties can file the documents to obtain a decree. No one has to appear in court. If there are no outstanding claims, the final divorce decree can be entered. If one party does not agree to the divorce and it's contested, they have to wait two years from the date of separation before they can move forward to resolve the economic issues and enter a divorce decree.

Attorney Sebald did a great job handling my case. I was cited improperly for a traffic accident, and Steve and his partner were able to resolve the situation quickly and with great professionalism.
I was charged with theft by extortion, a 3rd degree felony which carries a possible sentence of 7 years in prison and 15,000 in fines. Against my better judgement, I took the advice of Stephen and pled guilty for a reduced sentence.
