How Long will my Divorce Take?
A lot of times when people come to see me about a divorce, one of the first questions they ask is how long it takes to get a divorce. Everyone wants the divorce to be over and they want it over as quickly as possible. In Massachusetts, it takes approximately 9 to 14 months. That’s what the court has for tracking on the time standards that they like to put a divorce on. I find that it can be a lot less than 9 months and it can be more than 14 months depending on the parties and what the nature of the disputes are. So it truly depends on how quickly you’re able to come into an agreement on the issues that are confronting you in your divorce.
