What Is Uncontested Divorce?

Going through a divorce can be very stressful, especially if it is contentious. You might be worried about having to go to court and rely on a judge to make decisions for you. Divorce litigation can be very time-consuming and expensive, plus it makes a lot of people uncomfortable to have all the private details of their marriage made public. Luckily, there is a better way.

Divorcing spouses are increasingly using alternative dispute resolution techniques in order to come to an agreement. If both spouses can agree on each issue, then you can avoid costly and time-consuming litigation. Even if your divorce is not exactly amicable, these strategies can work well as long as you are both willing to participate in good faith. Coming can save you time and money while preserving your privacy.

How Can My Spouse and I Reach an Agreement About Our Divorce?

At The Cusic Law Firm, P.C., we have a number of strategies we routinely use to help spouses reach compromises that work for both parties, even if they are not really getting along. In some forms of alternative dispute resolution, you would not even need to be in the same room as your spouse. Of course, if your divorce is an amicable one, then you may find solutions like mediation to be the simplest way to resolve your divorce.

Mediation is an option that allows divorcing spouses to reach an agreement with the aid of a neutral third party, usually an attorney, who you both agree to work with. Each of you should be represented by your own lawyer as well.

In one style of mediation, you and your spouse will sit down with your respective attorneys and the mediator. With the mediator leading the discussion, you will talk about each issue, from property division to child custody, until an agreement is reached. This may be an excellent choice if your divorce is amicable.

Another option is for you to sit in one room with your lawyer while your spouse sits in a different room with their lawyer, and the mediator moves back and forth. This might be a good idea if you and your spouse have a lot of conflicts and would prefer not to interact directly.

Attorney-facilitated negotiation is another good choice for couples who do not want litigation but are not easily able to compromise. In this form of alternative dispute resolution, your lawyers will negotiate with one another. In these situations, we will advocate for you and try to work out a deal that is agreeable to you.

The goal of mediating a divorce is to minimize conflict and cost while arriving at a settlement that is agreeable to both parties. Our goal is to help you avoid litigation and resolve your divorce in a more amicable way.

Uncontested Divorce and Children

Divorce litigation can be upsetting for children. They may have to speak to an amicus attorney or have a conference with the judge to discuss their wishes. Children who see their parents working together to settle their divorce may have a greater sense of stability.

Issues concerning the children, like custody, visitation, and child support will need to be resolved as well. Alternative dispute resolution can protect children from conflict surrounding them. Children win when we are able to help divorcing parents come to an agreement about a co-parenting plan.
