  • GNGF Design/Development

Is a quick and easy divorce an option in Virginia? The answer is yes. Without a doubt, a divorce is a serious change in your life and must be taken seriously. Yet, there are times when the process is fast and can be an easy decision for you and your spouse. At The Law Office of Afsana Chowdhury, PLC, our team is ready to help facilitate this by offering a comprehensive service that is designed to provide you with the most transparent process possible. We protect your rights and move the process along as quickly as possible.

When Is a Quick and Easy Divorce Possible?

Making the decision to file for divorce should come from a place of careful consideration. There are times when both individuals agree to the divorce and want to move forward with their lives. For example, you may have married someone in haste, and it has not turned out well. You may have been married for a very short amount of time.

There are some situations where this may be ideal:

  • You have separate assets
  • If you have children together, you agree on the terms
  • You’re older, and both agree to simply split
  • The marriage was in legal terms only
  • Both parties recognize the benefits of the divorce

There are many situations where a divorce can be completed quickly. The key is to ensure that your rights are protected throughout that legal process, no matter how much you just want it to be over.

How to Make an Amicable Divorce Happen

The easiest way to have a quick and easy divorce is to have an uncontested or amicable divorce. This simply means that both parties in the marriage agree to the divorce and want to move forward with it. At the same time, both individuals are able to come together to make decisions about the divorce together. How can this happen? Here are some key factors to consider.

  • Make property decisions fairly. Determine the value of assets that you plan to keep instead of selling. Be sure to split the assets based on value. Work through these decisions together when possible.
  • Agree on child custody decisions with your child’s outcome in mind. Try to make decisions about child custody and visitation based on what is fair to your child. That may include ensuring they don’t have to change schools, could remain in the home they know or have the same relationship they have with each spouse.
  • Be open with your spouse about your needs. That may include discussing your decisions about property but also decisions related to time spent with children. Keep the lines of communication open.
  • Avoid the topic of fault. One of the biggest problems in an amicable divorce occurs when parties focus on fault. If you can agree that the marriage failed due to both of your actions or neither of your actions, then fault does not have to play a role in this process.
  • Work with an attorney. Even in a case like this, it is best to have an amicable divorce attorney available to help you. That helps ensure your rights are protected throughout this process.

Unsure if an amicable divorce is possible?

You may want a quick and easy divorce, but your spouse may not be willing to make decisions fairly. Under Virginia law, only one person has to file divorce documents. However, if your partner does not agree to the terms included in that document, it may still be contested. That could drag out the process longer.

In situations like this, it may be necessary to come to an agreement with your soon-to-be-ex that they will agree to in order to allow the divorce to move forward. Keep in mind that your divorce attorney will work carefully with you to ensure your rights to assets and financial support are met. Our goal is to support your best outcome and negotiate a fair settlement for you.
