Many folks wonder how long it is going to take to complete a divorce in the Tampa Bay Area. This is obviously a popular question for Tampa family law attorneys. Obviously, many people desire to quickly resolve their divorce and move on with their lives. Family law attorneys can certainly understand their desire for finality and a conclusion.
Ultimately, the length of the divorce will depend solely on the ability of you and your ex-spouse to agree on issues. For example, if you and your ex-spouse are able to resolve on issues regarding time sharing, that is one less issue that the court will have to decide on their own. If you and your ex-spouse are unable to decide on anything, then the court will be forced to decide all issues. The Tampa family law attorneys of Hackworth Law have handled divorces where each party has made concessions and quickly resolved the case within roughly 90 days and other cases that have taken literally years. Again, it all depends on the complexity of the issues decided during your case to determine how long it will take to complete a divorce.
It is impossible to determine the length of the divorce without additional information, but we will ensure that we will efficiently and effectively move your case throughout the divorce process. The majority of the delays in your case will likely be attributable to the time between hearings, required by the court, but set based on the Court’s availability.
