Is there such a thing as a Quickie Divorce? If not how long will it take?

A ‘Quickie Divorce’ is a myth. It is a term created by newspapers to describe a speeded-up divorce process that is seemingly only available to the rich and famous.

The same process applies to everyone regardless of status and financial position and the quickest way in which parties can achieve a ‘quickie divorce’ is by starting immediately, issuing the petition on a ‘blamed basis’ (i.e. ‘unreasonable behaviour’ or ‘adultery’) and the respondent agreeing returning the Acknowledgment of Service promptly. Even with both parties working together on achieving a ‘quickie divorce’ the whole process can still take months particularly if the Court is stretched and takes a long time processing the documentation.  Normally the process takes between 4 to6 months but which can be delayed if there are financial issues that have yet to be resolved.
