Lockwood & Jones FAQ’s

Once we file for divorce, how long do we have to wait to actually get divorced?

There is a statutory waiting period of 60 days, so you have to wait at least 60 days from the date that you filed to actually get divorced. The actual time frame will depend on the specific circumstances of the case. It could take a year or longer.

Does my spouse have to agree to the divorce?

No. Only one of the spouses has to request the divorce.  If the other spouse does not agree to it the Court can grant the divorce over their objection.

Can I receive temporary spousal or child support?

Yes, the Court has  discretion on ordering temporary support payments while a case  is pending.

Once the divorce is finalized, can I resume use of my former/maiden name?
