Do you need the help of a divorce or legal separation attorney?
For most people facing divorce a prenup or other contractual document was not on their radar when they married as they believed their relationship would stand the test of time and last a lifetime. For those in this situation a more traditional divorce or divorce mediation/collaborative divorce provides the only option for a dissolution of the marriage. A divorce can be contested or uncontested. An uncontested divorce is one in which the parties agree on all terms and conditions and the division of assets and debts and are both willing to sign documents signifying that agreement. A contested divorce is when one or more issues remain in contention and cannot be agreed upon or, for whatever reason, one party refuses to execute the documents necessary to effectuate an uncontested divorce. Many divorces that begin contested end with an agreement rather than proceeding to trial, however, you can never presume your divorce case will settle and must at all times remain prepared to proceed to trial if necessary. Some people choose to go forward with a collaborative divorce where both parties agree, in writing, to a process that puts an amicable settlement of all disputes as the primary goal of the parties and work towards that solution with a team of professionals that make sure everyone’s voice is heard and that all possible solutions and alternatives are considered and evaluated by the parties. For those divorces that are contested many end up settled through the mediation process.
