Once the divorce petition and other documents have been filed and served on the other party, you need to wait a minimum of 90 days if you and your spouse agree on all issues. This is an uncontested dissolution. Even if you and your spouse do not agree to all terms in the beginning, Curry & Williams, PLLC is committed to settling the vast majority of its clientsвЂ™ cases. Curry & Williams, PLLC commits itself to settling your case if the issues can be settled in a manner that are in your best interests.
If you and your spouse cannot agree on all issues, the only other way to obtain a divorce is through a trial. The length of a divorce trial varies depending on the complexity of the issues and number of witnesses. In such event, the judge makes all decisions (there is no jury in divorce cases). In King County, trial dates are assigned about eleven months after filing. This time period varies with other courts.
Curry & Williams, PLLC is committed to expedite your case and to conclude the proceedings for you as soon as possible so that you can get on with your life.
