How Long Does it Take to Get Divorced in California?

In California, a divorce cannot be finalized sooner than six months after the divorce petition is filed and served on the non-filing spouse. During that time, you and your spouse can be working out the details of your divorce settlement with your attorneys, so that you have an agreement ready when you reach the six-month mark. Of course, many divorces take longer than six months to resolve, but six months is the minimum length of a divorce process.
