if you and your wife both wants divorce then you can file divorce under mutual consent. In that case there would be only two motions in family court. A Joint petition would be filed by you both only after one year of you marriage and decree would be passed in maximum 6 month.

As per law the prescribed period is 6 months from the date of filing the Divorce Petition. However normally takes between one to years depending on the competency of Advocate. In case of an Advocate whose is not so versed in such matters the time may gone to more than the period as mentioned above, even to decades.
The fees could be on daily basis Or on lump sum basis
