Getting a Divorce in Tennessee
A divorce can be friendly and relatively painless. Or, a divorce can be hard-fought and full of conflict.
If you know that your marriage is ending, it is a good idea to get as much information about the divorce process as possible — as early as possible.
It is also a good idea to seek early legal advice, even if you think your divorce will be friendly and conflict-free. You need to have an experienced professional on your side — someone who will be your advocate throughout the entire divorce process.

How Long Does It Take to Get a Divorce in Tennessee?
The length of the divorce process in Tennessee depends on two main factors:
- Did the marriage produce children?
- Is the divorce contested? In other words, are there issues you and your spouse can't agree on, such as division of property, child support or child custody?
An uncontested divorce with no children can be finalized in as little as 60 days. An uncontested divorce with children can be finalized in as little as 90 days.
The length of time a contested divorce will take depends on how long each spouse is willing to fight the other.
Additional general information about divorce in Tennessee is available from our Divorce Information Center.
