How long does it take to get a divorce in Wake?


Dear John Doe:

Greetings. It is generally 45 -60 days from service of the complaint when the divorce decree is signed. Best of luck.

Hi there,
If I file for divorce in Wake County in January and promptly serve my spouse and there are no complications, how long does it take to get the actual divorce decree in my hands?
