How to make your divorce fast, easy and cheap

Virtually every New Jersey couple that has decided to end their marriage would like to do so in a manner that is as fast, easy and inexpensive as possible. However, in many cases the parties are not sure how to do so, and make mistakes that cost additional time and money. The following tips offer a few approaches that can greatly reduce the cost, timeframe and stress level of a divorce.


Perhaps the most important consideration is the manner in which both parties approach the divorce process. In many cases, once a couple has reached a decision to end the union, there is a period of optimism and positive thinking about the process and the future in general. Seize these positive emotions and communicate to your husband or wife, as well as to friends and family, that you plan to move through the steps with a positive attitude and an eye toward the future. Doing so can set the tone for the rest of the process, and can greatly influence the outcome.

Another savvy move is to be as organized as possible throughout the process. Set a timeline for when you wish steps to be completed, and share this with your attorney and all other professionals involved in the process. Gather all necessary documents and information, which will cut down on unnecessary communication between parties and attorneys, which can be expensive. Keep in mind that any details that spouses can agree to on their own will save time, money and likely stress, as opposed to lengthy and contentious negotiations or litigation. Remain focused on a fair distribution of assets and the ability to move on to a new life as a single person.


When a couple is able to work together to end a marriage, the results can have effects that last long after the divorce decree is in hand. By cutting legal costs and ensuring the divorce process does not drag on longer than needed, parties are able to turn their focus on the future, rather than becoming mired in the past. In the end, New Jersey spouses have a great deal of control over just how fast, easy and cheap their divorce can be.
