How can I get divorced fast?
A quick divorce will depend heavily on the divorce being an uncontested divorce. If there are any child custody issues that need to be addressed and if filing for divorce in a county that allows for an easy divorce. Because the divorces we help with are granted without a court hearing they are usually faster than filing in local courthouses.
Our process is simple: we type the documents, you (and) your spouse sign the documents in front of a notary; the case is filed and you both receive the paper in the mail.
The most important thing is to remember that both spouses being in agreement can shave weeks of waiting however we can only provide estimates since it’s not up to us as to when the judge will sign the dissolution of marriage.
How long does it take to get divorced?
It depends if the divorce is an uncontested divorce, if all requirements are completed (such as the parenting class if there are minor children in the marriage, and if the couple has resolved all their debt and other terms. If the couple reaches a mutual agreement then the days and legal fees involved will be shorter.
If your spouse must be served the papers the timeline will be unpredictable since it will require a hearing with the judge. In the case your spouse does not respond to the petition then a motion for default and default must be filed and a hearing requested.

How do you get a divorce if you have no money?
If you need to file for divorce and you do not have any money or have a low income then you can file for divorce with the Application of Indigent Status. If you qualify the court filing fees may be waived which will save you $408 at a minimum. The form requires all income and debt are disclosed in the form when the divorce is filed.
If you hire an attorney to help you with your divorce see if you still qualify for the court filing fee waiver. Another option would be to go to the courthouse and buy a packet of forms and complete them yourself and then file them along with the court filing waiver. You will need to sign the documents in front of a notary prior to filing in the court.
What is an uncontested divorce?
If both of you agree with all the terms of your divorce and both parties are available to sign documents in front of a notary then filing for quick divorces using the uncontested divorce makes sense. This is also called a “mutual agreement” divorce.
