How Long Should My Divorce Take?

Welcome to Merritt Law’s Q&A style videos. These are answers to some of the more common questions that we receive at Merritt Law. We hope that they help to provide some clarity and assurance in your family law matters.

“So, how long can I expect my divorce to take?”

Here in the State of Texas we have a mandatory 60-day cooling off period. So, even if everything is agreed – all the paperwork is done – you still have to wait for the 61st day before you can go and get the divorce granted. On average, we find that most divorces take between six to nine months. I hope this answer was helpful.
