Divorce Attorney Kenneth White’s ANSWER:

A divorce can be finalize in a swift manner as soon as a settlement in confirmed. 99% of all divorces are resolved by settlement, the only question is whether it happens immediately or with the passage of months. Once a settlement is confirmed (provided a Complaint and responsive pleading has been filed) the court can be notified by one party’s attorney that there is a settlement, and the court will generally get you in as quick as possible to finalize the divorce, as the Judges are happy to get your case off their docket.

For more specific answers to the questions you may have you should schedule a consultation with an experienced family law attorney.
