  5. If you have a written separation agreement, you will need a conversion divorce. That requires that you provide us with the agreement and we file the action for divorce. The paperwork can be completed and filed within two business weeks, but both you and your spouse will need to sign the documents necessary to complete the filing.

    If you do not have a written agreement, the process is longer. We can prepare a written agreement within two business weeks of receiving all of your information. After the agreement is signed by both you and your spouse, the action for divorce can be filed.

    While it is possible to have all of your paperwork completed and filed promptly, as I have outlined, once it is filed, we must wait for the court to review and sign all of the paperwork. It can average from 4 weeks to 12 weeks for that process.

    My office maintains a website for uncontested divorce at At that website, you can retain our office and provide all of the information that we need online, from the privacy of your home or office. Although this is an online process, my office and my staff are available every day to answer questions and to proceed with any of the work that you need done.

  7. If your spouse signs all the necessary papers and the papers are done correctly it takes about 3 - 4 months to get a judge to sign the Judgment. That is of course, after the submission to the clerk. You should have a local attorney prepare all the necessary papers.
