How long does it take to get Divorce in Delaware?

  • In Delaware, the timing of a divorce is as follows: First there must be a separation of at least 6 months. After that, because most divorce proceedings are uncontested – no fault – the divorce can occur within 2-3 weeks, once jurisdictional requirements are met.
  • Following that, other issues, called “ancillary matters” – like property division, alimony, custody and child support need to be decided/litigated.
