The most difficult states to obtain a divorce

Not all states are created equal when it comes to divorce proceedings. The following are the most difficult states to obtain a divorce, according to

Arkansas has the longest processing time in the country, 540 days! You must also be separated for 18 months. If you cohabit for any time during that period, the year and a half will start over.

South Carolina requires a year of separation before you even petition for divorce. A three month minimum residency is also mandated in order to file.

Rhode Island’s processing time takes 510 days and a five month “cool down” period is required.

Getting a divorce in California can also be confusing and difficult. However, those of us at the Law Office of Daniel Jensen, P.C. in San Jose can simplify and guide you through this process. Get in touch with us today by calling (408)296-4100 to see if we can help you.
