Divorce Lawyer, Cordell & Cordell
The length of time a divorce case takes to reach resolution is entirely dependent on the facts and circumstances in that case.
Uncontested cases – cases in which there are absolutely no disagreements as to any issues in the divorce – can be resolved rather quickly. But contested cases involving child custody agreements can take much longer to resolve, sometimes as long as a few years.
In my experience, contested custody matters can often take some time to reach the judge's trial calendar so it is not uncommon for those actions to take one to two years to reach a final conclusion.
There are many factors which could result in a delay of the court hearing the case.
