Is there such thing as a “quickie divorce”?

When we first speak to clients, many clients mention a “quickie divorce” and are under the impression that there is some alternative process to obtain this.

Sadly, there is no “quickie divorce”; there is only one process which follows the same procedure, unless the divorce is disputed by the spouse.

The divorce process itself is relatively straight-forward and rarely causes issues, and can be concluded in a few months.  However, most clients will wish to resolve the financial issues first, before concluding a divorce (as there are implications for concluding the divorce before a financial settlement has been reached).  Unfortunately, it is the financial aspects which can usually lead to disputes, which can delay concluding the divorce process.

Our committed team of Family Law experts at Howell Jones can guide you through the divorce and financial process, to help ensure you reach a financial settlement which is fair and reasonable.
