Cupid’s Advice:

Making the decision to divorce from your partner is difficult enough, but when the divorce process drags on for years, that’s about as bad as it gets. Making your divorce as swift a possible subsequently makes it as painless as possible. Cupid has some tips:

1. Stay on top of it: Know what papers you need to have, communicate with your legal team, and show up on all necessary dates. Staying organized and making it to all court dates will eliminate bumps in the road and setbacks.

2. Keep a level head: Letting your anger take control of you and fighting for every last thing in your divorce will undoubtedly slow the process. Try to remain calm, cool, and collected. Know what you absolutely need to get out of the process, but also know what you are wiling to compromise on.

3. Be patient: When it comes down to it, you can be 100% on top of your stuff, have a great legal team, and still have a slow divorce. A lot depends on how the other party is handling things. If you’re on speaking terms with your ex-to-be, try your hardest to see eye to eye. If not, just be patient during the process–there’s only so much you can control.
