If you have filed for a divorce in Circuit Court and are unable to resolve disputes related to support, custody, property division, etc., you need to be prepared for a process that can take a minimum of 18-24 months. Sounds like forever? We know. Unfortunately, it takes time to file and respond to pleadings, to gather information, to prepare for trial, to meet requirements of Court pretrial orders, to present your case, and to argue post-hearing motions. And, if your spouse is difficult in providing information, then it can take longer. Not what you want to hear when you are already anxious about getting thing over with. So, try to think of the turtle. If you ever have the privilege of touring the United States Supreme Court, you will notice turtles everywhere (statutes, not real ones)– they are there to represent the slow and deliberate pace of justice.
