How Long Does a Divorce Take in New Jersey?

The first question I always get from my divorce clients is how long will the process take?  Of course as an attorney my answer is always, “it depends.”  I do not say that to be evasive or to pad my billing.  I say that because it truly depends on the facts of the case and the temperament of the parties involved.

In my experience, parties that really have no assets and no children can usually be divorced within a couple months.  Parties that have many assets, children and 10 or more years of marriage can take 6 months or longer.  I can say my quickest divorce took just a month and my longest took almost 2 years.
