How to Find Out if a Divorce is Final

If you’ve recently consulted a divorce attorney near La Plata, you may be wondering about the waiting periods applicable for the divorce proceedings. For example, as your family law attorney can advise you, it generally takes two to three months to finalize an uncontested divorce in Maryland or up to 18 months to finalize a contested divorce. In the event that your family lawyer files a contested divorce and there is no appeal, the judge will sign the final decree and then the divorce will be finalized 30 days later.

You can learn more about the finalization of a divorce by watching this video or by consulting your family lawyer. The expert in this video explains how you can check on the status of a divorce through the county courthouse records.
