A divorce can be finalized in as little as three months. However, this of course depends on the parties' willingness to settle all issues, which necessitates full disclosure of assets or a willingness to waive the right to full disclosure. Many divorces take in excess of one year. In those instances there are complicated issues to resolve such as the valuation of businesses, custody and parenting plans, possible imputation of income to a spouse who may have not been in the work force for awhile, income analysis, life style analysis, temporary support pending the final resolution of the divorce proceedings. Each of these issues can take time and the parties have to provide their respective attorneys with relevant information in a timely matter to keep the proceedings moving along. The New Jersey Courts prefer divorce cases take not much longer than one year. Much of how long a divorce takes rests upon the parties involved.
