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.
