Divorce in a Day - how it works
The legal system can be a toxic and traumatizing experience to couples who are divorcing. Oftentimes, people get caught up in unnecessary court battles which cost them thousands of dollars, damaging their children and destroying any chance they might have otherwise had to successfully co-parent. Divorce in a Day is a low cost, practical solution to a broken legal system.
Divorce in a Day allows for couples to walk out of the divorce process with smiles on their faces, still talking to each other, and relieved that the process is over and they have the ability to move on.
Divorce in a Day - the steps
At the workshop, you and your spouse will be given an overview about the divorce process by one of our experienced attorneys. You will also be assigned a paralegal who will draft all your documents for you.
After the overview, you will be transferred to a conference room where you will meet with our attorneys. Each attorney will negotiate a different aspect of the case. You will be given three hours to negotiate the terms of your divorce.
The information will then be given to your paralegal, who will draft your agreement that day. You and your spouse will review and sign it. Our office will notarize the agreement and then file it with the court. The entire process is completed in a period of five hours.
