This depends on the cooperation of the parties and the complexity of the issues. If you both are willing to act freely disclose information without undue delay, then the process can go rather quickly, such as 45 days to 3 months. If your spouse chooses to be uncooperative and play games, or if there are complex assets to be valued, then a divorce can take in excess of a year. The new divorce statute (effective January 1, 2016) requires a parenting plan be entered within 120 days of the filing of the Petition for Dissolution of Marriage.
