Getting a divorce? Trial may not be necessary!
Dissolution of marriage can be a very long and difficult process. There are many issues that must be resolved, terms that must be agreed upon, and decisions that need to be made. If you are facing divorce, then it is important for your future that you have skilled representation on your side. Without legal assistance, you could end up with highly undesirable circumstances and arrangements for your future.
Uncontested Divorce: Overview
Most people think of contested cases when they hear the word "divorce." The first thought that pops into your head may be a heated courtroom case between two spouses who are fighting over who gets the house, who gets which car, who gets the children – but the truth is that most divorces are uncontested.
Uncontested divorce occurs when two spouses agree to get divorce and then work out each area of their divorce agreement between them. Uncontested divorce cases can be accomplished through mediation, where a certified mediator guides both spouses through the divorce process without favoring either party, or through collaboration, where each party retains their own attorney for counsel only and not representation.
Not all divorces require a heated courtroom battle. If you are facing an uncontested divorce in which you and your spouse agree on each of the various terms of your dissolution of marriage, then you may benefit from the option of
Divorce Mediation vs. Collaborative Law
In mediation, you and your spouse will choose a neutral, third-party mediator to guide you in coming to your own divorce agreement. You will not have to go to court unless you reach a disagreement in any area. Divorce mediation can help you pursue a favorable outcome and can also
speed up the process a great deal, since you will not have to argue your case in court or fight over each little facet of your divorce.
Another option for uncontested divorce is collaborative divorce. During this process, you and your spouse retain separate legal counsel and once again meet outside of the courtroom to work out your own settlement. In each of these cases, should you complete your divorce agreement,
you will only need to go to court to present your agreement to a judge so that he or she may enter your divorce decree and finalize the matter.
