Shorten the Divorce Process by Waiver

Shorten the Divorce Process by Waiver

In almost any court proceeding, defendants have 20 to 30 days to answer a complaint.  This is even true for uncontested divorces.  Even though both spouses may consent to the divorce, and even agree on terms, one spouse will have to initiate the divorce proceeding by filing a complaint with the court.  In an uncontested divorce, the defendant may not want to answer the complaint.  Since the parties have already agreed to the terms of the divorce, the defendant has no reason to challenge the divorce.  But since a defendant has 20-30 days to answer a complaint, there is an unnecessary delay in the process.  The defendant can eliminate this waiting period by waiver and allow the case to proceed more quickly.  This waiver can be made in the defendant’s affidavit, which is to be filed with the divorce.
