How long will it take to get divorced in NJ?

  • New Jersey courts want you to have your divorce finalized within a year of filing the Complaint for Divorce, but that’s not always possible.
  • If the parties are amicable and can agree on most of the issues, it may be done in a matter of months.
  • If you have more complex financial issues or perhaps you can’t agree on the issues that exist in your specific situation, it may take longer than a year.
