We have no kids, and nothing to split up. We also were only married for 7 months, and just now separated for a week. And we have agree to sign everything without complications.
Pay the money for a few hours of an attorneys time, you will have to sign waivers of conflict of interest, and have him or her explain everything and do all the paperwork.
I say that because your question asked what was the "fastest" way, not "cheapest," or "fast and cheapest," but just "fastest."
For the sake of completeness, there are also two other grounds for divorce other than living separate and apart for 180 days. These are found in Louisiana Civil Code Article 103, Paragraphs (2) and (3) : (2) The other spouse has committed adultery; or
(3) The other spouse has committed a felony and has been sentenced to death or imprisonment at hard labor.
Neither of these would seem to appeal to a couple seeking something "without complications," but you did ask for the fastest way, and these would allow you to file immediately.
