This is a common question we often hear from people who wish to finalize matters so arrangements can be made to marry again. Once your divorce judgment is granted, it becomes effective 31 days later. However, even though divorces by agreement can be relatively straightforward and can be submitted to the Court by way of desk application, delays in the process can happen: anything from last-minute issues needing to be resolved, documents not being available in a timely manner, and filing delays can all arise unexpectedly. What could be a three-month process from start to finish often can be at least six months, so we recommend that even in the most straightforward cases, you not set a wedding date for at least six months from when you begin your uncontested divorce. And, from all of us to you, we wish you the best of the holiday season and for the coming year!
