      Yes, it is possible to file for divorce without an attorney. Many individuals choose to handle their divorce themselves, especially if it is uncontested and they have a clear understanding of their rights and obligations. However, it is advisable to consult with a legal professional to ensure you are making informed decisions.

      The time to finalize a divorce varies but typically occurs after all necessary agreements, such as property division, child custody, and support, have been reached. Finalizing the divorce may take a few weeks to a few months after the agreements are in place.

      Grounds for divorce vary by state, and some states offer both fault and no-fault divorce options.
