How long does it take to get a divorce?

 

About 50 days from start to finish. It will usually take us about ten days to prepare your divorce documents. Once they are filed with the Court, there is a 30-day waiting period by state law. After the 30 days are up, we can ask the Court to approve your divorce. Usually, you do not have to appear in Court to finalize your case.

Can we both use the same lawyer?

 

A lawyer cannot ethically represent both sides in a case. That being said, if the parties agree on all terms, one lawyer can prepare all the paperwork and the other party may then seek his or her own attorney to review the papers or may decide they are satisfied with the documents as drafted. However, it is extremely important for the non-represented party to be aware that the attorney represents one person only and cannot provide “legal advice” to the non-represented party.
