The divorce process can be time-consuming, particularly if you and your spouse are unable to reach an agreement on key issues, including child custody and alimony. Often, when a couple has made the decision to divorce, they want to reach an agreement as soon as possible. While that can be difficult, there may be ways to streamline the process and reach a divorce agreement in just a few months.
Every divorce is unique, and there are factors that can cause some divorces to need more time to reach resolution. For example, if you have been married for a long period of time and have accumulated significant marital property, it can take more time to divide assets.
However, whether your divorce is contentious or amicable, there may be ways to speed up the process, including the following:
- No-fault divorce: In New Jersey, you have the option of filing for a no-fault or a fault-based divorce. By filing for a no-fault divorce, you plead “irreconcilable differences” as the grounds for divorce.
- Open communication: If you and your spouse refuse to talk to each other, you will likely have a difficult time resolving issues like custody, parenting time, and equitable distribution. In some cases, it may be worthwhile to meet with a therapist who can encourage respectful and productive conversations.
- Resolve issues out of court: Your divorce will likely be finalized more quickly if you are able to resolve your issues outside of court. Once you have discussed and reached an agreement on key issues, you may consider putting it in writing and have your lawyer review the document.
- Mediation: A mediator can work with you and your spouse to help you resolve your issues and reach an agreement much faster.
