How Long Does it take to get a King County Divorce?

In Washington, it takes 90 days from the time you file the Petition until you can enter a Decree of Dissolution. That does not mean you will be divorced in 90 days, that is just the soonest that it can happen. If the parties are in agreement of all issues, it can be finalized on the 91st day or any day thereafter. If the parties are not in agreement, then you must wait until you reach an agreement or the matter is resolved at trial. At trial, the judge will decide the issues that are in dispute, and then the final papers can be entered. In King County, Washinton, the day you file, you are given your trial date, which is approximately 11 months after filing.
