In Connecticut there is a mandatory 90 day waiting period which starts running 12 days after your divorce papers have been served.  Therefore any divorce is likely to take close to four months.  However, if there are any contested financial or custodial issues then the divorce will likely take much longer than four months to settle.  If you are moving out of the state it is important to know that you must be living in Connecticut to file for divorce in Connecticut.
