How long does it take to get divorced or legally separated?

Divorces and legal separations can be difficult, both emotionally and financially. This is especially true if the parties are not in agreement. Perhaps one wants to dissolve the union, and another does not. Maybe the parties can't decide how to divide assets or other details.

Experienced Divorce Attorney

At the Law Offices of Robert M. Kaplan, PC, your Schaumburg, IL attorney can help expedite the process provided all parties can agree on specific terms. Again, divorces and legal separation timeframes come down to mutual party cooperation.

If you both are willing to disclose information freely without undue delay, then the process can go rather quickly. Sometimes, things can be finalized in as little as 45 days to 3 months.

However, if your spouse chooses to be uncooperative and play games, or if there are complex assets to be valued, divorce proceedings can linger for a year or longer.

divorce statute (effective January 1, 2016) requires a parenting plan to be entered within 120 days of the filing of the Petition for Dissolution of Marriage.
