The Keys to a Quick Divorce

Published on May 28th, 2020

Rockford Divorce Lawyers

Sometimes, things just don’t work out. When a married couple decides to separate, the process can be painful, confusing, and complicated. For some, miscommunication and bitterness make things even more difficult. But, it doesn’t have to be this way; it’s possible to get a quick divorce that allows both parties more room to grieve and recover.

Uncontested Divorces

Like a marriage, divorce can be an agreement. Couples who manage to amicably approach their divorce proceedings are much more likely to move through the process quickly. As this may be the last time you need to agree on something, consider this an opportunity to do right by you both. The easiest type of divorce is an uncontested divorce, where all major issues have been decided upon, including:

  • Custody
  • Visitation
  • Child support
  • Division of debt
  • Division of property
  • Life and health insurance

No-Fault Divorces

The legal specifics for ‘no-fault’ divorces vary state by state, but the concept is the same across the country: no one person can be blamed for the end of the marriage. The benefit of a no-fault divorce eliminates your need to prove grounds for divorce, which could otherwise include adultery, cruel or inhuman treatment, or abandonment.

What You’ll Need for a No-Fault, Uncontested Divorce

If both parties are committed to a quick divorce, proceedings can move forward uncontested and no-fault! Going through a no-fault, uncontested divorce is sometimes referred to as a ‘papers only’ divorce as there may be no need to visit the court at all. Though the exact requirements vary by state, most will require the following:

  • The purchase of an index number
  • To have a summons or petition served to your spouse (to which they respond)
  • Income, spousal support, and child support worksheets
  • A marital settlement or separation agreement
  • Judgment of divorce
