Can anyone give me and idea of how long it takes to be divorced if mediation goes well.
I very much doubt mine will be settled by mediation but one can always hope.


Every new beginning comes from some other beginnings end.

It's different everywhere copout. For me, it wasn't court ordered mediation. My XH and I chose to go to a divorce mediator to help us write up the sep agreement. We did that in about 5 visits because he didn't have his brain, it was in the OW's lap. We did the mediation in June/July, signed the papers by mid August, I had the papers in my hand and mortgage in my name by Sept 3.

The next summer I filed the D papers. He was a bit upset I filed with Adultery as the reason, but eventually signed, and I was divorced for Christmas.

I had court-ordered mediation because the courts are so busy here anyone who does not come up with a settlement on their own prior to their court date has to do mediation.

Mediation was on a Thursday, we came to an agreement somewhere around 5:30 PM, and as soon as it was signed my attorney told me we'd be going to the judge first thing the next morning with the agreement. So the next day I stood before the judge and got to hear the words "Divorce granted."


Say what you wanna say and let the words fall out...honestly
I wanna see you be brave

Pretty pretty please, don't you ever ever feel
Like you're less than, less than perfect
