How long will my divorce take in the state of California?
Unfortunately, there is no fixed timeframe for a divorce. However, there is a law that requires a minimum length of at least six months. This means you and your spouse cannot finalize your divorce proceeding until at least six months after the respondent spouse receives the divorce papers. The length of a divorce also depends on how quickly you and your spouse can agree on matters such as child custody, child support, property division, and also whether or not you have to go to court.
