How long does an uncontested divorce in Missouri take?

Short answer to that question is - it depends.  It depends on how quickly you provide the necessary information to your attorney, it depends on how quickly your attorney can draw up a comprehensive settlement agreement that you are happy with, it depends on how quickly you can get to your attorney's office to sign the final paperwork, etc.

I bill my uncontested divorces on a flat fee.  That being the case, delays do not make me money, they cost me time.  The quicker I can get the divorce filed, the quicker I can get it final.  If the process goes smoothly without delays, the entire divorce - from initial interview to final judgment - can be done in less than 60 days, and sometimes in as little as 35 days or so.  My website has a page dedicated to reviews from past clients, which also shows how long each anonymous client's uncontested divorce took to finalize.

I have no reason to push off finalizing the case.  I believe that flat fee billing promotes efficiency in uncontested matters, which is why I choose to bill that way.  Please feel free to visit my website for a uncontested divorce FAQ, which has more frequently asked questions relating to Missouri uncontested divorces.
