Some people wonder if there are ways that they can obtain a divorce in a more simple and efficient manner. One way to do this is through a nonadversarial divorce, which can actually be completed in less than 35 days, as opposed to other divorces that take much longer. Some of the benefits of a nonadversarial divorce, aside from a quickly completed divorce include that you don’t actually ever have to enter a courtroom in order to become divorced. This is beneficial in itself because you don’t have to pay court fees and you don’t have to take time off of work in order to become divorced.
There are many requirements that a couple needs to fulfill if they want to consider nonadversarial divorce. In order to be considered eligible, the marriage must have lasted for a maximum of 8 years, neither spouse is pregnant and there are no other children in the family, and the total value of assets must be less than $35,000. In addition, neither party may have a pension, a bankruptcy, is benefitting from Medicaid, and there may not be any orders of protection involved in the marriage.
If you have questions about your eligibility to obtain a nonadversarial divorce, you may want to consult with an experienced divorce attorney who can assess your case and inform you of your options. If you are not eligible for a nonadversarial divorce but are still interested in a quick and efficient divorce that stays out of court, you may want to consider mediation. Speak with an experienced divorce attorney who can help you get started.
