The Sacrifice of Personal Time During a Divorce
The amount of time required to finalize a divorce can be nauseating. You will need to supply your attorney (and potentially other professionals) with countless documents and transmissions. Your attorney will give you, in the beginning, what appears to be an endless form, which can often take up to 5-10 hours to complete. It will ask for details in your life you forgot about or did not realize were relevant, let alone even existed. You will need to research numerous subjects from bank account numbers to mortgage companies and loan numbers. The time required to supply the requested information is exhausting. This task of collecting this vital data is further complicated with shortened time frames.
Your attorney will need time to review and evaluate the information submitted. Your attorney will also need time to construct a declaration or to place the information properly into court documents. Gathering the necessary information will require sacrificing time from your work (this can mean using vacation days).
You are probably assuming you will be able to manage your divorce outside of your work time. This may be partly feasible, but many of the people you need to be in contact with are only available during your work schedule.
This loss of your valuable time does not include appearances in court. Commuting and waiting for your turn in court also results in lost wages and time.
