In California, the law requires that a judge must wait at least six months before finalizing a divorce petition. This is the mandatory waiting period. However, the actual time frame varies from case to case.
Before submitting a divorce petition to the judge, the couple must first agree to the terms and settlement outlined in the divorce. If both parties agree and submit the paperwork to the judge, the divorce process could be finalized in approximately six months. But if the parties cannot agree to certain aspects, especially when it comes to property division, custody, and support, the process could take longer.
