How long does it take to get divorced?

LegalVorce provides both you and your spouse all forms required in your state that the court needs in order to finalize your divorce. After you have completed our online interview, which most people do in 1 hour or less, your next steps are to sign the forms we provide you and then file them with your local court. Once filed, it will take the court a specific amount of time to process and finalize your divorce. The time it takes varies by state and can sometimes vary based on whether or not children are involved. We have listed the specific time it takes to get divorced for each state in the chart below:
