How long does a divorce take?

There is a mandatory 90 day waiting period before your divorce can be finalized, which can be waived in special circumstances. If both parties can agree on all issues, the divorce can take as little as a three months by resolving the divorce through stipulation. If the parties cannot agree, the divorce could take much longer. Without agreements by the parties, a trial is necessary to resolve the disputes. Arguing and fighting over issues can cause a divorce to go for years.
