How long does it take to deal with a divorce?


The national average time for a divorce if you both agree is 33 weeks according to the UK Government. The average time for an agreed divorce using our services at The Law House is 14-16 weeks.

One of the major questions we get asked at The Law House is “how long is my divorce going to take, we both agree to it, it should be quicker?”. It appears to be the major consideration for people when they are getting divorced. The problem is every divorce goes through the same procedure in every court, so whether it is agreed or not actually does not matter, 99% of all divorces are undefended so the fact your divorce is agreed won’t help you get it processed any quicker.
