One of the most common questions in the divorce process is, “How long is this going to take?” For couples who are filing a DM divorce – in other words, a divorce that involves children – they can expect the process to last a minimum of six months, or 180 days. Divorces that do not involve children are labeled DO – these take a minimum of 60 days to complete.

And find out why a 60-day divorce is the minimum for every couple in Michigan, no matter their marital, financial, or parental situation.
