my wife filed for divorce in sept.2012; her reason was that the marrige was broken apart and irretrievable. I gave my answer and said that she was cruel and inhumane toward me. After 4x of going to court, my lawyer suggusted that we get a settlement. my lawyer suggusted that we obtain a dual divorce; she would get irretriveable breakdown of marrige and i would recieve cruel and inhumane treatment. She does not agree to this. After all this she does nothing and the divorce process just stops for 5 months. and now i have filed for a counter divorce [irrretriveable breakdown of marrige] in hopes of finishing this divorce. how long can a divorce go on for, is there anything she can do prevent or make the time longer for the divorce process?
Divorce is the process of formally ending a marriage. Divorces may be jointly agreed upon, resolved by negotiation, or decided in court.
Divorce court is where the divorce process takes place. The court may determine matters like alimony, child custody, and property division.
