How Long Does A Divorce Take In Connecticut?

July 6, 2020

While there is no guaranteed time frame for a divorce, generally parties can anticipate that the process in Connecticut will take anywhere from three months to one year. Once the divorce is filed, there is a 90-day waiting period which takes effect before the parties are expected to appear in court for what is known as the “case management date.” The length of the divorce process will depend on the parties’ ability and desire to cooperate, and the complexities of the underlying issues. If the parties agree on the terms of the divorce and have the necessary paperwork ready, they can schedule a date to appear in court any time after the 90-day waiting period to finalize the divorce. If the parties are in agreement on all issues and anxious to finalize the divorce immediately, they can ask the court to waive the 90-day waiting period and get an expedited court date.
