3 Things That can Expedite Your Divorce Case

While divorce can be difficult, the process does not always have to be drawn out and/or adversarial. In fact, there may be some things you can do before and during divorce to facilitate the process, obtain favorable outcomes and get on with your new life sooner. We’ll point out some of these things below.

Your Divorce may Proceed More Smoothly With…

When you want your divorce to proceed as smoothly as possible, here are some things to keep in mind, a Scottsdale divorce attorney explains.
  1. Some advanced planning – If you have the time and are able to, planning for divorce can be extremely helpful to facilitating a future case. This is because, with some planning, you may be able to get a clear picture of your marital estate/assets (and potentially an idea of how you prefer the division of marital property to go). You may also be able to start figuring out other potential issues in your divorce.

    Being able to pinpoint the issues and your stance on them, while even compiling essential documents (like financial documents, for instance), can be integral to a smooth divorce case moving forward.

  2. Compromise – Being willing to give on some issues in your divorce can go a long way to getting some of the more important things you want. In fact, when you are open to compromise, you can motivate your partner to be open to compromise, and this can make for a far smoother divorce – as well as better outcomes, as you and your partner will be in control of the final settlement (rather than having the court make decisions for you, which will occur if you and your partner cannot come to terms with any matter of your divorce case).
  3. A mindset towards the future – While divorce can drudge up the past, possibly triggering bitterness, anger, grief and other emotions that can complicate the process, focusing on the future and what is best for you (and your children) can help you set aside unproductive feelings and focus on the goals of your divorce. In fact, if you are able to maintain focus on the future, you can minimize the fighting with your ex and start laying the groundwork for a smoother divorce.

Client Reviews
Karen is highly respected in the legal community. She is effective and thorough. Karen just keeps going regardless of the odds.
★★★★★
Karen was extremely helpful setting up my petition for conciliation. She is by far the most knowledgeable attorney regarding the necessary paperwork, how to file the petition and where it has to be submitted. She listened intently when I was describing my situation and intentions. She was very responsive to my questions and request. She is trustworthy and diligent . I would recommend her to anyone having marital issues.
★★★★★
Very high customer/client considerate. We found Karen when we were forced to leave another Phoenix lawyer due to his bad advice and lack of interest to help us. We were in Phoenix for six days from Michigan with nothing happening but a high wasted expense. Karen and her firm took us in and solved our issue with the courts etc. in two and a half days. Karen’s professionalism with us was very cost effective/productive. If we would have found her first, we would have saved thousands of dollars. Her interest for us was very high. She returned every call. She knew every answer to our questions. She did this for us with a death in her family. She left for a funeral and made sure we were treated with the same professionalism from her firm to finish up. I recommend Karen and her firm with very high satisfaction. Our case is custody with one parent in prison. We will return to Phoenix someday with interests for the child and his parent, if needed. Karen will be our top choice.
★★★★★
Karen and Bonita are wonderful!! I know that the word "wonderful" is used a lot, but the team they make and the work they did for me can only be described as WONDERFUL!! Yes there where ups and downs in my case, but that is the system and Karen along with Bonita guided and taught me as "WE" went through it together. Karen’s easy going manner and her knowledge really helped me with the emotional part of my divorce. I used the team of Karen and Bonita both times I needed to go to court with my ex and had results that were best for my little girl. Some times I did not get what I wanted, but it was what my daughter needed. Looking back at my case, I made the right choice and would do it again in a heart beat!!
★★★★★
Karen was extremely supportive during a very trying time in our lives. She helped me to put things in perspective and think positive when I was overwhelmed. She is very knowledgeable about the laws pertaining to grandparents rights and the rights of the parents and knew how to provide the appropriate laws pertaining to the situation we were in. I am so grateful for her expertise and guidance. She proved to be very aggressive when she needed to be but was also supportive to my and my children. I would recommend her to anyone in a similar situation.
