Why are divorce papers so long?

While it is true that some lawyers write up needlessly long divorce documents just to pad their bills, even the most efficient and honest lawyers often find themselves having to draft (write) documents that are longer than most people want them to be.

Why? You can answer this question yourself with this simple experiment:

Draft (write) up what you want the terms of your divorce to be, ensuring that it’s clear and complete and leaves out nothing that is important to you, understanding that if your court order is not clear and complete and does not cover every issue that is important to you, then it may be difficult to enforce, perhaps impossible to enforce. And if you forgot to include a particular provision or particular provisions, you’re out of luck as to those issues.

Then see just how short or long your document is.
