Many people that go through divorces wonder what they can do to expedite it. Divorces are known to be long and drawn out and emotional, which they typically are. However, there are several ways that a divorce can be expedited. One aspect that typically speeds up a divorce is by having a prenuptial agreement in place. These are great because they allow individuals to protect their assets in the event of a divorce and if a divorce does happen, all of the financial aspects are already agreed upon. These can include spousal support, the division of assets, and more. If a prenuptial agreement was already in place prior to the time in which the couple was married, they will only have to handle matters related to any children that they may have had together during the marriage. Child custody and child support are not allowed to be included in a prenuptial agreement.
Other than prenuptial agreements, another way that a couple can expedite their divorce is by getting divorced through mediation. If the couple is willing to work together and communicate effectively and efficiently, the divorce can be concluded in just a few mediation sessions.
