How long does it usually take to finalize a divorce in South Dakota?

In South Dakota, there is a mandatory 60-day waiting period from the time the divorce is started until the court has jurisdiction to grant a divorce.  However, most divorces are not completed in the 60-day time period.  The more complex the case, the longer it usually takes to complete the divorce.
