Every individual case has its own unique set of circumstances and the time involved in a collaborative divorce will always depend on how complex the unresolved issues are and how difficult it will be for the participants to resolve them. The more willingness the participants show to work together toward cooperating in being transparent when providing documents and getting together with other pros who are members of the ‘team’, the less time it is likely to take. In most cases, a collaborative divorce will be finalized in under a year, which in all likelihood is quite a bit shorter than a conventional court-based divorce.
