Thank you for your question!


Unfortunately, the only way for spouses to really expedite a divorce is to agree to divorce and to agree on issues pertaining to property distribution and child custody. Unless both spouses can agree on all three of those issues, a divorce can take a while. This is because both spouses have interests in those matters and the litigation process can be time consuming and costly when the spouses can't effectively work together.

Regrettably, uncontested divorce is about as painless as divorce gets. Absent spouses working together in good faith, divorce can be costly and it can take a while. Neither spouse can really change that unilaterally.

What if the spouse doesn't want to divoice, instead, insists on finding out the reason why to divoice? Such as having the third party involved in the relationship.

I'm sorry. I received your message but I don't understand your follow-up question.

What more do you want to know?

What is your new question?

Thanks!
Customer: replied 3 years ago.
I am sorry that I didn't speak clearly about the situation. If one spouse doesn't agree to divoice and thinks the other spouse has other relation between them, what can the spouse who initiates the divoice start the divoice process? In another word, what's the first step of legally starting the divoice? Thank you.

The first step to filing for divorce is filing the petition at the Clerk of Court's Office. The petition must also be served on the other party.

I would highly recommend that you retain an attorney for the process. Your attorney will take care of all of the procedural stuff for you. However, if you choose to represent yourself, you'll want the following links. They're great resources for people who represent themselves.
