It takes at least six months for the divorce to become final. The six months is counted from the date that the partner who started the divorce had the other served with the Petition for Dissolution and the Summons OR when the other spouse responded (filed their first paper), whichever is earlier. A divorce is not final until a Judgment of Dissolution is signed by the judge. There are several forms to be completed and additional steps to be taken before a Judge will consider a Judgment.
