Kim Kardashian was hoping her divorce trial would begin next month, however a judge has ruled that the trial will begin on May 6.

Kardashian's lawyer, Laura Wasser, was in court this morning alongside Kris Humphries' new attorney. His previous lawyer Martin Waller dropped him as a client just days ago.

Humphries' attorney asked the judge for another delay before setting the trial date, however the judge declined his request.

Kardashian filed for divorce on October 31, 2011 ... only 72 days after tying the knot.
Humphries, 27, responded by claiming he wanted an annulment based on fraud and asked Kim to pay for his attorney's fees.

Wasser is arguing that Humphries' legal team has been abusing the legal system by stalling the trial.

Kim is currently on her way to the airport for a trip to Nigeria. But before she left, we ask how she feels about the trial being set for May. She responds with a smile.
