How Long Does It Take to Get Divorced in Florida?

There’s no such thing as a straightforward process for a contested divorce. Every contested divorce is full of variables that can significantly lengthen the time it takes to finalize. 

On average, an uncontested divorce can be finalized between six weeks and three months. A contested divorce can and usually takes much longer than three months. Though some can be slightly faster and others slightly longer. For more information, speak with a Florida Divorce Lawyer today. 

Experienced divorce attorneys have an in-depth understanding of how divorces work in Florida and use that experience to drive the process forward in a controlled manner.

What is an uncontested divorce?

When is a divorce uncontested? An uncontested divorce occurs when spouses have already agreed on every major and minor decision. This includes parenting plans, child support, alimony, division of property, division of debt, asset distribution, and all other relevant matters pertaining to the divorce. 

An uncontested divorce is faster and less expensive than a contested one.

Complex divorces, such as a high net worth divorce, usually take longer due to the detailed analysis required for assets, investments, and properties.  

Divorce Mediation

For a married couple seeking a divorce in Florida, State law requires you to attempt to finalize your divorce in mediation before going to Court. 

Divorce mediation allows a neutral third party to help each spouse negotiate and come to a mutual agreement. This method is often faster and less confrontational than a traditional divorce court proceeding.
