Different Types of Divorce & Dissolution
Marriages can be dissolved through divorce, legal separation, or annulment, and with either one or both spouses/domestic partners choosing to end the union. State courts encourage individuals to make extensive preparations before filing for dissolution, and for good reason—from filing court forms to negotiating arrangements, being unprepared for the process or performing a step incorrectly can easily prolong the divorce process and add unnecessary costs.
Our divorce lawyers can save you time and money by helping you prepare for every legal procedure. This starts with determining what kind of divorce can most effectively address your needs.
There Are Four Basic Types of Divorce:
- Collaborative Divorce: Spouses conduct negotiations and other procedures with each other outside of court and with their attorneys present
- Contested Divorce: Partners who are unable to reach an agreement on their own petition a court to decide on the arrangements in hearings
- Uncontested Divorce: Divorcing couples who wish to raise no issues over the dissolution may conclude the process with minimal procedure
- High Net-Worth Divorce: Spouses with significant assets like business ownerships and stocks may want to ensure their financial security after a divorce
Effective planning and preparation before engaging in a divorce can eliminate most of the troubles that you may be expecting to encounter.
