      The divorce process can take anywhere from a few weeks to a few years, depending on your state’s laws and your specific circumstances. Some states have residency, separation or mediation requirements that prolong the process. Divorces with complex estates or challenging custody issues generally take longer than cases with few assets and no children. A local divorce attorney can help you understand the likely timeline for your particular case.
