If you retain the Firm to represent you, we can draft all your documents and get them filed within 24 to 48 hours. The next step is to have a process server deliver the divorce papers to your husband or wife, or to speed things up, he/she can waive service of process. Then we can speed things up even more if they waive an answer and counterpetition and go right to the marital settlement. Our lawyers can draft the agreement if there is one, or the parties have to exchange financial disclosure and go to mediation where a settlement can be reached then.
I once did a divorce case start to finish in four days with a marital estate in excess of $30 million … the parties came in with an accountant and terms to which they agreed to. I drafted and filed all the documents including the petition for dissolution of marriage, notice of final hearing, final judgment of divorce and marital settlement agreement.
Where a collaborative divorce is done, and the parties agree in advance, that makes the process much quicker and more pleasant.
