If you are located in or within the area of Plainview and you’re ready to make the call to start your divorce, you have probably asked yourself at some point “how long will the divorce process take?” There are a lot of different factors to take into consideration when trying to figure out how long your divorce will take. Odds are, you probably won’t be able to accurately answer that question if you’ve never been through a divorce.
According to a Legalzoom.com, a legal info website, there are two types of divorce that can determine the overall length of the divorce itself. (1) An Uncontested Divorce, which is when the couple mutually agrees to the divorce and have reached an agreement that the divorce, including property division, spousal support, child support, and custody, is equally divided between both parties. (2) A Contested Divorce is when the process will be considerably longer. In the event of a Contested Divorce, the spouse who initially files have up to 120 days to serve their spouse, in which the other spouse then has 20 days to respond to the divorce complaint. The spouses must then go through a series of meetings called “The Discovery Process” which can last up to six months. Afterward, a trial date will then be arranged by the court to finalize the divorce.
