An irreconcilable differences divorce, also called a no fault divorce, requires a minimum of 60 days after the paperwork is signed and filed. A fault based divorce requires a minimum of 30 days after the defendant is served, if he files no response and does not otherwise contest the divorce. You may be able to obtain some temporary relief, such as custody of children; possession of the marital home, and/or a protection order for domestic abuse. Contact a local attorney to discuss this in more detail.
