The Divorce Checklist will put into perspective the steps you'll need to personally address while going through the often difficult process of filing for divorce.
Filing for divorce is a complicated process that can be full of frustrating delays and unpleasant surprises. An idea of what is going to happen as the divorce process unfolds can make an uncomfortable time a little more predictable. Understanding the technical process from beginning to end will help you prepare for the steps ahead. That's why it pays to have a strong family lawyer versed in divorce at your disposal. Our family lawyers in Doylestown and Norristown law offices are here to help.
It's hard to say how long all these steps will take in your case. The entire process of filing for divorce can last from as little as a few months to as long as two years or more. Generally speaking, the more the couple can cooperate and agree to reasonable compromises, the smoother and faster the divorce will go. The family lawyer you retain will be assisting you with the procedural requirements and deadlines. Understanding the process may help you reduce anxiety and stress.
