Waiting Period

Irreconcilable differences divorce cannot be granted until at least ninety (90) days after filing. This is a minimum interval. My experience indicates a normal interval of about ten (10) days more than the minimum required for uncontested divorces. The waiting period for contested divorces is a minimum of thirty (30) days after filing, but normally between nine (9) months and twenty-four (24) months.

During the waiting period we will try to help you work out the details of parenting, visitation, support, and property settlement, or if necessary, prepare for trial.

Certain circumstances may qualify for a quicker divorce, but I recommend a quicker divorce only in unusual situations.
