Every divorce is different. How long the divorce process takes depends on many factors. Some cases are resolved quickly and reasonably without contention, while others are complex for a variety of reasons such as an adversial relationship between a couple, child custody concerns or complex financial portfolios. Preparation by both parties and their willingness to work together, signal a smoother process. If negotiations break down,however, proceeding to litigation may be the answer as some issues are worth fighting for.
