Every divorce is unique and comes with particular issues and challenges. Unfortunately, this makes the question of how long the divorce will take difficult to answer reliably. However, there are a variety of factors that can impact how long the divorce proceedings last. These include California’s six month minimum rule, the relationships between the parties, the complexity of the financial situation, and the type of lawyers that the spouses retain. Before delving into these factors and how they can impact the speed of the proceedings, it can be helpful to have a basic understanding of the different steps of a divorce.
