A divorce is often a difficult time for both spouses involved. It can not only be expensive, but also time consuming. If things can't be agreed upon it can lengthen the process, and if paperwork isn't filed just so, it can extend the time it takes to finalize things. Massachusetts residents that have been divorced may have wondered why getting a marriage license is a quicker process than getting a divorce.
There are many things to consider when going through a divorce. Obviously, cost is a factor. The longer the process takes the more court fees both parties are potentially faced with having to pay. Some states require a specific length of separation before a couple can even think about fling the final paperwork.
