Methods of Uncontested Divorce

Collaborative divorce is a common way to achieve an uncontested divorce. It allows each spouse to retain a divorce lawyer and other family specialists to assist them with the legal, financial and emotional aspects of the divorce process. A collaborative divorce can help spouses achieve their objectives in a way that meets the needs of both parties, without having to handle the matter in court.

Other advantages of a collaborative divorce include:

  • Each spouse has their own divorce lawyer
  • Financial matters can be fully addressed by an unbiased expert
  • Both parties work through problems together
  • Can help prevent upsets and reduce stress
  • The process is confidential

Mediation Services

Our firm offers mediation services for those who wish to keep their divorce outside the courtroom. A mediator will act as an unbiased third party who will evaluate the situation. They will consider factors such as income, expenses, relationship with children (if any children) and assets, among other things. They can also evaluate your desired divorce up against any prenuptial agreement. Uncontested divorce also allows both individuals to agree to the terms of divorce before divorce paperwork is even filed. Litigation is therefore avoided.
