A quick, easy divorce is the dream of anyone in an unhappy marriage. The internet has made it seem as if you can get anything you want delivered to you the next day, so why not file for a quick divorce online?
While there are ways to get your divorce quicker, filing for divorce online is not possible. Every state requires the couple who are divorcing to appear in front of a judge and testify about their situation. Divorce papers and/or settlements have to be filed with your local county clerk’s office and not on a website.
If you search the internet, you will find sites that offer downloadable papers that you can print and use in your settlement process. If you choose to do this, make sure you are printing the papers from the state in which you intend to file. Some sites will let you fill in the information and then print completed forms, while others sell only the forms.
An amicable divorce is your best bet for a quick and easy divorce. When most people hear the word amicable, they assume that means they have to be friends with their spouse. This is not true at all! An amicable divorce simply means that you and your spouse have agreed to work together towards a settlement you are both happy with.
This means that you will have more control over the issues you are more concerned about such as child visitation and custody. If you have to go to court, the judge will decide what is in the best interests of the children and you will have to abide by that decision. Working together, you can choose the best arrangement for your family’s needs. This can be especially helpful if one parent works a swing shift and a traditional every other weekend schedule may not work.
You can find tons of information about divorce online. If you choose to research your options on the internet, use only reputable sites. Remember that not everything you read online is correct. The best place to get advice about your situation is to contact a family law attorney in your area.
