Simplified divorce is a process that is typically reserved for couples
who have not been married for an extensive amount of time. The longer
that a couple has been together, the more shared property they have accumulated.
Also, couples who have remained together for many years may have children,
may co-own business, may have made investments together and so on. Couples
that recently tied the knot and then regretted their decision may not
have all of these factors, and therefore can get a simplified divorce
that will take less time and money.
Normally, in a simplified divorce, the parties will want to hire divorce
attorneys to work on their side. They will then work through their case
and divide what little property that they have. Simplified divorces most
often don't involve any child custody issues. When a simplified divorce
is done correctly, it will only take about 30 days from start to finish.
One requirement for this simplified divorce is that the couple must file
under a no-fault divorce category.
This means that if one spouse wants to attribute blame to the other, they
cannot use this process. Also, the couple must agree that they have no
conflicts that will need to be litigated over in court. Even though divorce
is disappointing and hurtful, spouses will need to be amicable throughout
the process and able to negotiate and discuss with their ex-partners when
there is a need to do so. A compassionate Los Angeles family lawyer at
