This means that there are long delays and challenges associated with moving quickly.
Second, the complexities of your case will dictate the speed of the case. A case where there are no children and no major assets will move quickly than a case that involves the valuation of a business, division of several retirement accounts and complex custody concerns. Thus, the complexities of a case determine how fast the case can move.
