A common question I get asked is “how long does a divorce take in the state of Florida?” The answer is, it depends.
A few factors:
* Is the divorce uncontested? If you both agree to the divorce, it is much shorter.
* Are there children involved? Children typically extend the amount of time required.
* Is there extensive property involved? More property usually means a longer divorce period.
Do you want to decrease the amount of time and money spent on a divorce? Try to get consensus on the divorce, property and custody arrangements prior to filing.
