If the divorce is uncontested and there is no delay in serving the divorce papers on your spouse and your spouse is co-operative, the process typically takes 5-6 months (bearing in mind that there is a mandatory 3 months period after the interim judgment is obtained to when the Court grants the final judgment for divorce.)
If contested, the divorce proceedings typically take 12 months and more depending on the nature of the dispute.
