Tips for Speeding Up the Divorce Process

Posted on in Divorce/Family Law

WI family lawyerDivorce is a complex and time-consuming process that involves more than simply filling out some paperwork and submitting it to the court. In some divorce cases, it can take several months to reach a settlement. If you are going through the divorce process and would like to finalize your divorce as soon as possible, these five tips are sure to help.

1. Conduct Some Research

Once you decide to file for divorce, you should educate yourself on the process so that you know what to expect. This way, you will not be blindsided by any issues and can respond quicker.

2. Be Cooperative

One of the main reasons divorces take so long is because couples cannot come to agreements on a variety of issues including property division, child custody, child support, and spousal support. If your goal is to speed up the divorce process, you should make an effort to be cooperative with your soon to be ex-spouse. Keep in mind that while it is important to make reasonable compromises, you should protect yourself and avoid giving into every demand.

3. Refrain From Hiding Assets

Sometimes, people make the mistake of hiding marital assets because they do not want them to be awarded to their soon to be ex. In addition to being dishonest and illegal, this practice can significantly delay your divorce. If your soon to be ex believes you are hiding assets, a forensic accountant may need to be hired.

4. Make Your Children a Priority

If you have children and are going through a divorce, make sure that your children’s best interests help you make decisions related to child custody and child support. Think about what will allow your children to a live healthier, happier, and more comfortable life and use this information to quickly reach an agreement with your soon to be ex-partner.

5. Consult an Experienced Divorce Attorney

It can be tempting to attempt a DIY divorce in order to save money. However, going through a divorce without experienced legal representation will only prolong the process and may end up costing you more money down the road. A divorce attorney can help you collect all important financial documents, fill out paperwork correctly, and submit paperwork on time so that there are no delays.
