How Long Will it Take To Complete Our Divorce?

If a couple is using, our online divorce website, the length of time it takes to complete all of the documents depends on a number of factors. Some couples with few assets or issues complete the site in one sitting.  It depends on how complex the couple's situation is, how much needs to be discussed, etc.   Others complete it over time. Someone registering for gets unlimited use of the site, so there is no time limit and they get use of their account as long as needed.

In terms of how long it takes for the divorce to become final, that depends on the state of residence.  FYI, one files in their state of residence, not of the marriage.  Each state has a residency requirement and a waiting period - the time period between the date of filing and the date the divorce can become final.

Here is a link that includes the residency requirements and waiting period for all US states:

Once a couple completes their documents on our website or elsewhere, they take the forms and file them with the clerk of the divorce court in their county of residence.  Filing fees are paid to the court at that time.  Filing fees vary by jurisdiction.  The clerk should be able to tell you what they are for your jurisdiction.  Some courts insist that you appear before a judge in a hearing and some simply allow you to file the completed forms with the clerk.  Again, the clerk in your jurisdiction should be able to tell you the procedure.

Here is a website with the web contacts of many courts across the US. 

Here is also a website with the divorce laws of all 50 US states:
