One of the simplest and best options is through summary dissolution. This process is similar to a divorce but may have benefits that the divorce process does not have. It is notably faster and easier to process and no judge appearance is needed.

Stop delaying and take action

The stress of staying in a marriage that is not working and delaying your divorce can have a negative impact on your mental and physical health. Research has shown that couples suffering from marital stress are more likely to experience psychiatric disorders, and marital stress has also been shown to increase the risk of heart problems.

  • Marriage isn't more than 5 years. Technically, your marriage starts from the day of your wedding, until your separation.

We view divorce as an event. As if one day you announced: "I am divorced" and the next day your marriage ends. The truth is that it is a journey. It is a process. It is a method by which to get out of your marriage and re-prioritize your relationships, especially your relationship with yourself. Sometimes there is still love. Sometimes the love that once was is long gone. Ending a marriage goes beyond signing divorce papers. And divorce is not the end of a family, it is a reorganization.
