Hi Leon I will be filing my divorce from Kenya and i wanted to know how long does it take to get the divorce
Solicitor: Leon, Solicitor replied 11 months ago

Good Evening

Looking online I can advise you If the court is satisfied with the petition, marriage dissolution will be granted. The dissolution takes full effect after six months, after which parties are allowed to remarry. It is important you read the matrimonial Causes Act, Chapter 152 to help you in filing for the divorce decree.

The following link is the process of divorce in Kenya

https://venasnews.co.ke/2017/07/06/divorce-process-in-kenya/

I hope this makes sense and is of assistance. If you wish a phone call please elect for one but be aware it will be an additional fee. If there is nothing further thank you for using my services.

If I have missed anything, or you have any further questions please let me know

If there is anything else in the future please do not hesitate to ask.

Please do not forget to leave positive feedback.

Regards
Leon

Does that mean it takes 3 years get the divorce dissolution
Solicitor: Leon, Solicitor replied 11 months ago

The process to get the document filed takes that long. Once the court is happy then you are divroced 6 months later.

It is faster to be divroced here. You have to be separated for 12 months. It is no fault and then one month after the court date hears the divorce you are free.
