How long does a divorce typically take?


Under the Family Law Act, you need a period of 1 year of legal separation before you can apply for a divorce. From there, it will typically take at least 4 months for your divorce to be finalised and granted by the Court.

In the meantime, we highly recommend that you secure your financial future with a Separation / Binding Financial Agreement (such as the one we offer). You can do this as soon as you and your former spouse have decided to separate. This means that you can move on with your life before your divorce is officially finalised.
