How long does divorce take if my husband is out of state?

I filed for divorce, my husband has not been served he is out of state. Does this mean thatt the divorce wont be processed until he is served? And if so how long does it take until its finalized? Thanks!

      You’ll probably have to wait until he gets back first.

      It depends. If he can’t be found the court can order that an ad be put in the paper for 30 to 90 days asking for him to come forward to "contest" the divorce. If he still doesn’t show or can’t be found the court can declare divorce final without him being present. Friend of mine went through something similar and it took about 6 months.
