How Long Will My Divorce Take? Rockville, MD | 301-279-0692

The time frame for a divorce in Maryland can be difficult to predict. You should be cautious of any attorney who promises to complete a divorce in a certain period of time. Many factors affect the length of a divorce, such as:

  • The degree to which you and your spouse agree on issues
  • The cooperation between you and your spouse
  •  The court schedule in a particular county

In those rare cases when both spouses agree on every issue, a divorce can be completed in a few weeks. When the parties disagree on important issues such as custody, support or division of property, a divorce can take a year or more. If fraud or concealment of assets is involved, a divorce can take several years.
