Hi, If your husband is not contesting the divorce many courts will waive part of the 6 month waiting period. This differs from court to court. Some judges will say that if it agreed upon and in the best interests of the children, then they will finalize a divorce in less than 6 months. check with the local court and judge regarding the requirements for waive. The minimum time by law In Michigan is 60 days and that time cannot be waived. I hope that this is helpful to you. Good luck to you.
In addition to what Mr. Gornbein said, you may find that a court will be willing to waive part of the 6 month period, even if your husband objects, if you can offer a good enough reason. Remember, you also have to have worked out all custody, support and property division issues.
