Getting a Quickie Divorce

The end of a marriage is no small event. It's normal to feel pain over divorce, and, because of this, it's normal to want a quickie divorce so you can get it over with. If you and your spouse are both in agreement about making this a fast and easy process, then you won't have to spend months in negotiation or have to deal with huge lawyers' bills.

Make sure that you and your spouse are on the same page about the terms of the divorce. If you can negotiate who will receive what assets and decide on an appropriate custody arrangement (if you have children), then having a quickie divorce will be that much easier. If you and your spouse can't communicate verbally, try working these things out through e-mail or through letters.

If you think that you and your loved one need a mediator or if you and your spouse can't come to an agreement on custody or asset allocation, then a quickie divorce may not be right for you. Oftentimes, people want quickie divorces because they are eager to remarry.

The next step to a quickie divorce is researching cities, states and countries that offer fast divorces. Las Vegas, and Nevada as a whole, not only offer quick weddings, but they also offer quick divorces. Some countries also offer quick divorces. To make a divorce in another country legal, all distribution of assets must be agreed upon by both spouses. In some countries, a divorce can take a few days.

Make sure that, if you decide to go to another state or country for a quickie divorce, you check to see if it's legal or recognized by your own state or country. You don't want to go through all of the steps to a divorce only to find out you have to do it all over again.
