Marital bliss, meet divorce hell.

Kim Kardashian‘s marriage to Kris Humphries is so mired in court that a settlement is looking out of reach and a trial doesn’t appear likely until next year.

“To say I am frustrated is an understatement,” the reality star’s lawyer, Laura Wasser, complained to a judge Tuesday at a Los Angeles Superior Court hearing, according to E Online.

Humphries, 27, a pro basketball player, is seeking to annul the August 2011 televised wedding on the grounds the marriage was a fraud. Kardashian, 31, wants a straightforward divorce.

Now 10 months after the breakup, litigation shouldn’t last this long, Kardashian’s camp argues, due to a prenup and the fact that the two have no kids. Her side blames the delays on what it calls Humphries’s foot-dragging and odd tactics.

The latest weirdness, Wasser says, was leaving a deposition request for Kardashian boyfriend Kanye West in a Nordstrom’s box at Kardashian’s front door, when a simple delivery to the attorney’s office would have sufficed.

Humphries lawyer counters that Kardashian’s side hasn’t been helpful in providing business records needed to prepare for dozens of depositions, including stepdad Bruce Jenner.
