WHEN IS MY CASE GOING TO BE OVER?
Most divorce cases last anywhere from 3-12 months. It can be shorter, depending on the parties' cooperation, or it can be longer, if emotions run high and pockets run deep. Even though a very long, expensive, and drawn-out divorce is almost never necessary, it can and will happen if one or both parties are unreasonable. Our goal is to bring each case to a conclusion through a negotiated settlement. This saves the clients a great deal of emotional and financial strain. Once the divorce is underway, the initial pleadings have been filed, and the parties have attended one or more settlement conferences, the emotions that run high have usually cooled somewhat, and the parties can focus on resolving their case as cost-effectively and quickly as possible.
