Frequently Asked Questions

What are the grounds for divorce in Delaware?

Delaware allows for both “no-fault” and “fault-based” divorces. You can file for a no-fault divorce after living separately for six months, or you can pursue a fault-based divorce on grounds such as adultery, desertion, or cruelty.

How long does the divorce process typically take?

The duration of a divorce case can vary widely based on factors such as complexity, asset division, and child custody arrangements. On average, uncontested divorces may take as little as a few months, while contested divorces can extend to a year or more.

Will I have to go to court for my divorce?

Not necessarily. Many divorces are resolved through negotiation and mediation, avoiding the need for a court trial. However, if an agreement cannot be reached, a court appearance may be necessary to resolve outstanding issues
