90-day-mandatory-cooling-off-period

In Washington State a divorce cannot be finalized until 90-days after the filing and service of the Petition. This “cooling-off” period gives both spouses time to think about what they are doing. Even if both spouses agree to all the terms of the divorce, they must still wait for at least 90 days to legally finalize their divorce. Most cases take longer.
