How do a summary divorce and traditional divorce differ?

Every day there are couples who make the decision to file for divorce. It may have been a difficult decision to make, but at the end of the day, for some, there is really no other option. Even though couples may have different reasons for why they are choosing to end their marriage when it comes to how they want to end it, they only have so many options, and that includes a summary divorce and a traditional divorce.

Whenever people have various options as to how they want to handle certain situations, it is likely that all of their options will have benefits and drawbacks. When it comes to divorce, it is the same thing. For some couples, a traditional divorce may be the better option because of its many benefits, such as the possibility of receiving spousal support.  However, most states typically allow for another option;  a summary divorce, also known as a dissolution of marriage.

One of the main differences between a summary divorce and traditional divorce is the amount of time it takes for the divorce to be finalized. Depending on the couple and their circumstances, they will have very little to discuss during the divorce process, which means there may not be disputes to be resolved. With this being the case, the couple will have fewer court appearances and less paperwork to file, which means less time.

Anyone who is divorcing, whether they desire a summary divorce or traditional divorce, may wish to contact an attorney. You never know what types of disputes may arise and start to complicate the divorce process, so having someone knowledgeable about divorce on your team can be very helpful. Not only can an attorney help resolve issues, but he or she may be able to help you get what you want and finally get your divorce granted.
