Six Month Waiting Period For Divorce
Thus, in California, you cannot get divorced prior to six months after service of the initial pleadings. This is the earliest date you can be divorced, and most divorce cases take longer. If you have an agreement prior to six months, you can still prepare the final paperwork, but the divorce will not be final until the six-month period.
