How long does a divorce take? - Under Missouri Statutes, the absolute minimum is 30 days.  Even when everyone involved is incredibly motivated, both sides as friendly as can be, the practical limit is 45 days. Sixty to 90 days is very fast.  The more typical time-frame is about six months.  But an angry spouse seeking revenge can string-out a divorce.  A year is not uncommon, and it's not unheard of that cases last two years and more.

There are things that can be done to move forward in the face of opposition, but it requires a committed client and dedicated attorney.  It also means spending money, but in the long run probably no more than allowing the case to be interminably delayed.
