Why would you want a fast divorce? Divorce is usually an emotionally and financially unpleasant process. When forced to do something unpleasant, we try to get it over-with fast.
So you look for a way to get you divorce done quickly; let’s look at advertising for ” fast divorce ” on Google. Paid advertising for the key words “fast divorce” come from – paralegals, LDAs, attorneys, online companies providing divorce documents and flat fee uncontested divorce attorneys.
It can be a good idea to have an uncontested divorce which is usually fast divorce and inexpensive; however, you should be sure your spouse does not take advantage of your desire for a fast divorce.
Paralegals who provide document preparation services may know that one spouse is unwisely giving up his/ her rights on spousal support, property division or other issues, but Paralegal are unable to alert their client that a divorce settlement is unfair because technically they cannot give legal advice (because it constitute unauthorized practice of law, they are not lawyers). Frankly, some of them simply don’t care about the long-term consequence of your divorce and it is convenient for them to complete the paperwork without obstacles. Some paralegals working without an attorney supervision, so called LDAs, sometimes would cross the boundaries of an unauthorized practice of law and tell you that you are entitled to spousal support, but it is up to you to get a fast divorce without good legal advice or proceed with caution.
If you are desperate to terminate a marriage to get out of the toxic relationship and rush your way through a fast divorce, you might overlook your rights regarding spousal support, child custody, child support, property division. Your emotions might prevail over your rationality at the time of filing for the divorce and you might later regret it later, but it will be too late.
You can refuse spousal support and terminate your rights regarding it in the future. In this case, there is nothing you can do when things get difficult later as a consequence of your fast divorce. The same rules apply with your property – you might voluntarily give it up either because you don’t know the rules of the law or your are desperate for a cheap and fast divorce. At least, luckily for you is not possible to terminate child support jurisdiction; you can modify child custody and visitation in the future.
Despite my belief that an uncontested divorce is a much better solution than a contested divorce for multiple reasons, I strongly encourage you to educate yourself on all possible divorce issues or at least get an attorney’s advice. You don’t need to sign a retainer or even hire an attorney, if you don’t feel comfortable, but you can always find an inexpensive and good attorney who can clarify your rights and responsibilities during a fast divorce before proceeding with the it.
A one-hour consultation would not burden your budget, but might place you in a much better financial position in the future.
After you know what your position is with child custody, child support, spousal support and property division – you have a clear path to do a fast divorce with inexpensive document preparation and make a step for the better in changing your life.
The last point on the fast divorce is, no matter how much you are in a hurry, you will restore your status to single only six months and one day after the service of process of summons on your spouse is complete.
Consider a famous Russian Phrase; “you shall hurry by making slower steps”
