Finding the Right Approach for Your Situation
The legal dissolution of a marriage can happen through a number of different methods. Although some couples go through contested divorces that involve nasty legal battles, not all divorces have to follow this path. Rather than subject their families to an adversarial court process, some couples choose to pursue uncontested divorce, which is also called amicable divorce. In these situations, the divorcing couple seeks to work out the various issues of their dissolution without contention, and may choose to use mediation.
In mediation, families work with a professional mediator who assists the couple in resolving the various matters that must be addressed during the divorce process outside of court. The couple must agree to a number of set terms to be followed during the proceedings that allow the mediation to occur in a respectful and amicable manner. This method allows the family to avoid the stress and expense of a courtroom battle.
