Another common question is how long does a divorce take This is a vague question and is too broad and it’s difficult to answer. Why Because it depends on your case. Each case is different. Each case has paternity issues. Sometimes the custody of each divorce is different. Sometimes people want 5050, sometimes people want every other weekend. Sometimes people have businesses and sometimes they don’t have any marital property at all. Sometimes they agree to wave alimony and sometimes one of the parties want alimony for life or temporary so it’s a lot of factors that you have to take into consideration in.
