How long does it take to get divorced in California?

The divorce process in California varies depending on the complexity of the case. How well the spouses cooperate also factors into how long it takes to get divorced. California has a mandatory six-month waiting period from the date the respondent is served with the divorce petition. However, it’s important to note that the actual process may take longer, particularly in cases involving contested issues, such as property division or child custody.
