I Want a Smooth Divorce Process, What Should I Do?

If you want to make sure that your divorce process goes as smoothly as possible, you may want to make sure that you have all your information together to provide to your attorney.  All the information about the marriage, assets, and issues about the children (if any were born of the marriage) are relevant to help make sure those issues are outlined and resolved.  In divorces where there are discrepancies with financial information, or the parents cannot agree on child custody, it can take a long time to finalize a divorce.

How Long Will It Take for My Divorce to be Finalized?

Due to the uniqueness of marriages and divorces, the time it can take for the entire divorce process to complete can vary greatly.  As a result, it’s hard to say how long the process can take.  However, it may be sufficient to say that a divorce where spouses are willing to work together to resolve the marital issues and dissolve the marriage amicably can take much less time than an acrimonious divorce.  Once the issues of the divorce are settled, the court can enter a formal order, known as the divorce decree.

The Divorce Decree

A divorce decree is a document that is signed by a judge.  The divorce decree could include information about spousal and/or child support, child custody, property division, and so on.  Once a judge signed the divorce decree it is considered final.  Usually, a judge will sign the divorce decree when all the matters in the divorce are settled and the parties are in agreement to all the terms therein.
