In fact, the answer to not speaking to one another is to hire an attorney so they can do the talking for you. In the end you will have to make all the decisions, but you will just be paying an attorney several hundred dollars an hour to speak on your behalf.

This is obviously not what we are shooting for when working with you to assist you in your divorce.

Do You Have An Easy Divorce – Santa Clarita

While no divorce is truly easy (the Courts made sure of that) there are some that are not as difficult as others.

The divorce process is all about filing out forms and paperwork, following proper procedure and checking the correct boxes. This truly what is is all about, for course, aside from all the emotion and issues you are going through.

So the more issues you have to resolve the more paperwork there is to complete. That is what separates easy from the more involved cases.

For instance, if you don’t have any assets, debts or property, you don’t have to fill out the forms that relate to that. If you don’t have any issues with spousal support or don’t have any children, you don’t have to fill out the documents that relate to those issues.

Divorce cases that have fewer issues are easier in that there is less paperwork to fill out. But the paperwork is only one issue. You still have to ensure that you follow the proper procedure for your divorce to conclude properly. The forms are only half the battle.

Divorce is never easy, that I am sure we can agree on. It is the combination of dealing with a process you never had to deal with, combined with unfamiliar forms and confusing court procedures. This is what you are up against, even if you have what you think is an easy divorce.
