The formal divorce process is usually reckoned to take between four and six months before it becomes legally finalised.
However, a number of factors can influence the length, including the complexity of any issues you need to sort out between you regarding parenting, money or property. These are all issues which our family mediation service can help you settle much more quickly. Agreements reached in mediation can be used to form the basis of any court order you might need including a financial order that will provide certainty for the future.
The Covid-19 pandemic has also had an impact on the speed at which family courts have been able to operate. This meant significant delays getting a first appointment in the court, if you cannot agree a way forward with your ex and so need the court to intervene.
