The first thing that you should know about getting divorced in the UK is that you must, first of all, have been married for at least a year and you have to have legal citizenship. How long it takes to get a divorce varies.
You can get two kinds of divorces: undefended and defended. Undefended divorce is where the couple has mutually agreed to separate and neither of them is contesting anything that they shared, like children and property. This one can be wrapped up within 4-6 months, and you don’t necessarily need a lawyer (it is always advised that you hire one just in case).
A defended divorce is where the parties are contesting ownership of property and children. This one is filed at the high court and the issues within the divorce are the ones that determine how long it takes to conclude. In many cases, it takes about a year but it can go on for more if the parties keep refilling the matter.
The important thing, if you want to wrap up your divorce quickly, is as much as possible to discuss who takes what separately. If there are children involved, you should agree on shared custody and child support.
