After a while, many couples both decide they were not “meant to be,” and come to a general understanding on what they want to happen next. When that occurs, quickly getting the process over with can save countless months’ worth of stress, anxiety, uncertainty, agitation, hostility, and discomfort. Even the most amicable of separating couples can find themselves arguing over minor and trivial annoyances when trying to navigate the legal process of their marital dissolution.
Know Someone in This Situation? We Can Help
If you or someone you know is in this situation, we can help bring the marriage to a quick and low-cost resolution. Although we can only represent one spouse in any given divorce under the law, we can help you quickly convert your tentative agreement into a formal divorce agreement for your spouse to review, and can also draft the legal papers that must be filed with it (except for one standard form that must be completed by your spouse – we can give them a blank copy though). Once both sides are in agreement on the legal documents, we get them filed and arrange for a court hearing to finalize the matter.
In one county, we can often get the papers filed and presented to the judge on the same day or even morning!!!!! Again, in some cases we can literally file the completed papers together, and leave court before lunch with the case already resolved. Even in courts where that is not possible, the delay before the hearing is generally not too long when everything is properly filed, and in most cases having the agreement signed and filed will reduce the stress and fighting a great deal during the wait.
We Can Help You Reach A Joint Agreement Faster
Finally, even if there are a few issues in dispute, getting the assistance of counsel to finalize the remaining issues can help reach a joint agreement faster and with less stress than going it alone. This can be done before anyone files for divorce in hopes of doing so together, or it can be done after one side files.
