Going through a divorce is the most stressful time of our lives. But it’s a very common event, and many of us do it more than once.
Everybody is human and we all make mistakes. The important thing is to learn from our mistakes and get on with our lives. In this respect, surely if a couple have decided mutually that they want a divorce, the best thing to do is get it over as quickly as possible. Dragging out the process interminably just causes more stress and emotional heartache, not to mention financial worries for the couple, and a financial bonanza for the lawyers! Nonetheless, dragging out the process is what most legal systems do.
I was reminded of this recently by an Italian friend. Faced with a divorce process that was going to take at least two years at home, he moved to London. Having established legal residence in England and carrying out the process through the courts there, he managed to reduce the processing time to six months.
Still, if you and your soon to be ex have agreed to go your separate ways, there is a place you can do it in a day. Why do you think stars like Michael Jackson, Mariah Carey, Marc Anthony, Diana Ross all divorced in the Dominican Republic? Because it’s quick, simple and cheap.
Quickie divorces in the Dominican Republic just require that one of the parties goes there for a day. The decree is issued immediately.
Needless to say, this is not a way to solve complex cases where there are disputes. It is simply a way of getting the process done quickly, so that both individuals can move on to the next stage of their lives – by remarrying, for example.
If you are interested in finding out more, there’s a publication called the International VIP Express Divorce Kit you can buy online, and get the process underway immediately using the forms included. More information is at www.vipdivorce.com
The kit also answers basic questions like “is it legal?”. The answer is yes, but there are certain points you need to be aware of and they are clearly made, with details of real cases and legal rulings from the USA, the UK and elsewhere.
By the way, besides the Dominican Republic, the kit also covers unilateral divorces in Haiti, which allow you to obtain a legal divorce decree if your partner has disappeared. And it includes warnings about why Mexican quickie divorces are no longer valid, and why Guam is only useful for US military divorces. Check it out.
