What a night

I go to work and it is raining that changes to snow and causes the road to become slush covered. I'm not talking a little slush either, it is a good 3 inches of slush so got stuck in the town I work in until the plows decided to get out.
Now I get home and my attorney for my divorce has decided to all of a sudden withdraw since she can't seem to find the time to represent me anymore. So now I'm supposed to find an attorney with money I don't have to get this divorce finalized. My life seems to find a new way to suck each and every day.

We have been thinking about getting divorced, just because people don't understand open marriage and married dating. About how expensive is a simple uncontested divorce? Howw long does it take to be final?

Well my divorce is getting pretty bitter so uncontested is not the term to use for me. I had to give my attorney a retainer of $2000. I do know that if you can agree to the conditions of the divorce (i.e. property split, child support and visitation if you have kids) then you can both sit down with the same attorney and hammer out a divorce in little time with the costs probably being less than $500. A divorce can take anywhere from 30 days to years to be final. An uncontested divorce would probably be able to be final in about 60 days for all the paperwork to be worked up.
As far as you getting a divorce for the sake of others not understanding your situation, well that is something you may want to think about.
