What is the fastest way to divorce my spouse?

On Behalf of | Feb 22, 2023 | Divorce

Divorces take time and money, and there is no definitive amount for either of these variables. For the divorce to be finalized, the state of Kentucky requires the spouses to have been separated for a minimum of 60 days. When the spouses cannot leave the marital house just yet, it is still possible to get a divorce if they are not sexually active with each other for the same number of days.

Nevertheless, 60 days is not a guaranteed amount of time. Other elements are involved. The fastest way to pursue a divorce is through a no-fault and uncontested divorce.

What factors should I consider to speed-up the divorce?

To quicken the divorce, you and your spouse should consider going through a no-fault divorce. You do not need to prove to the judge or jury that someone was responsible for the marriage ending, which means you may not need to go to court at all. That is the easy part. The next decision relies on whether you and your spouse can reach a mutual agreement on all these factors:

·       Property and estate division

·       Business sharing or division

·       Child support

·       Child custody and visitation

·       Alimony

If neither of you will contest any arrangements stipulated in the settlement agreement contract, you can push through with an uncontested divorce.

A divorce attorney can ease the process

When you and your spouse enter divorce proceedings, a divorce attorney can mediate through the factors that could be areas of contestation. Having a learned legal advisor is important because the court may also determine your written separation agreement to be unconscionable. The attorney will act on behalf of you both, allowing you to make faster and more informed mutually beneficial decisions.
