I think this is the issue. If I'm reading the proposal right (and I may not be) the two year wait is only if one spouse contests. I don't have a problem with that.It now takes at least 60 days to finalize a divorce in Texas. Across the country, waiting periods range from 30 days in Alabama to up to two years in Maryland, if one spouse contests the divorce
In Pennsylvania it's 90 days if it's consensual, 2 years if one contests (possibly shorter if it is a fault divorce and you want to spend the ridiculous money to prosecute that....99% do not, for various reasons).
