The answer depends upon the nature and complexity of each case. If both parties begin the process in agreement regarding all issues, both financial and parenting, and all necessary documents are filed with the Court (i.e., Final Stipulation, Parenting Plan, Uniform Support Order, etc.), then a divorce could be completed in approximately 60 – 90 days, depending upon the Court where the matter is pending.
If the parties are unable to agree upon the terms of their divorce, the process can take considerably longer. Generally speaking, contested divorces can take from one to one and a half years. Ultimately, if the parties are unable to resolve their disputes, and a Court is asked to enter final orders after a trial, the length of the divorce can be prolonged if either party seeks an appeal to the New Hampshire Supreme Court.
