Unfortunately, there is no average or standard for the length of a child custody case. Factors including but not limited to whether the case goes to court, the state in which the case is held, the judges and lawyers involved in the case, and of course, the specifics and complexities of your specific case all play a hand in how long the proceedings can take to play out. Hearings for a custody case typically last 30 to 60 minutes, and in some simple cases there is resolution within weeks. However, complex cases with multiple factors can play out for a year or more, so depending on the factors at play it is important to prepare yourself for this possibility.
