In order to file a Complaint for Divorce, unless there are fault based grounds for the divorce, you will need to be separated for at least a year. However, if you and your spouse have a signed Property Settlement Agreement and there are no children born or adopted of the marriage then you can file after you have been separated for six months.
If you and your spouse do have children born or adopted of the marriage, even if you have a Property Settlement Agreement, you must wait one year from the date of your separation to file a Complaint for Divorce. If you have a Property Settlement Agreement, once all of the paperwork is turned over to the Court it generally takes six to eight weeks for the Judge to review the documents and then sign the Final Decree of Divorce.
If you are in a contested divorce matter then a trial date will be set and how far out that is depends on the Court where you filed the Complaint’s docket.
