It depends on whether or not the terms of the divorce are contested . A simple , uncontested divorce can be granted 31 days after service . Issues of paternity can delay the process , as they are married , he is still legally the father .
Careful. We don't want to learn from this.

Yes the divorce is Uncontested because we knew the guy in jail would make it difficult to divorce even though they have not been together for 8 years..........
Tomorrow I file to legitimize my son as there is no issue that I am the father.The legal husband was in jail the whole time my son was conceived and born and Im doing everything I can do as legitmizing my son to legally make him mine.Also, my fiance is pregnant with my second child and were hoping the divorce willbe final before she is born.
