The average divorce in Hunterdon and Somerset Counties, where I primarily practice, takes approximately one year from filing to finalizing, but divorces can take as little as one or two months or as long as three or even four years.
There are a number of factors that affect how long it takes to finalize a divorce, including the following:
- Whether the parties pursue mediation or litigation
- The complexity of the case
- The reasonableness of the parties and counsel in negotiating
- The desire of the parties to bring the matter to a close
