The duration of a contested divorce in the state of California can differ based on several elements, including the complexity of the specific issues involved, the level of cooperation between spouses, and the court's caseload. On average, a contested divorce may take several months to over a year.
- Discovery Process: This stage involves gathering information and evidence relevant to the case. It includes financial disclosures, depositions, and other methods to uncover facts that may impact the court's decisions.
- Negotiations and Mediation: Attempting to resolve disputes through negotiations or mediation can expedite the process.
