Finding the Right Approach to Your Situation
The 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. In these situations, the divorcing couple seeks to work out the various issues of their dissolution without contention. There are two alternative methods of resolution I recommend to couples: mediation and
Effectively Addressing the Issues
Every divorce is unique, and the experience is different for each person who goes through the process. Divorces are often complicated by a number of different issues that impact the people involved - such as their finances, whether or not they have children, and the division of any shared assets and properties. A small mistake can result in devastating consequences. A skilled divorce attorney in Orange County can help you identify the matters that will affect your divorce and address them in a way that helps protect your interests and your future.
There are many things to consider in a divorce, such as:
Negotiating Agreements Through Mediation
Divorce mediation is an effective way of resolving conflicts and negotiating fair terms for spouses. With the help of a neutral mediator, spouses can communicate their needs and interests with each other and make negotiations without the need of court litigation. In addition, hiring an attorney is an optional choice. A skilled divorce mediator will have the legal knowledge and experience that couples need to reach positive solutions in their legal issues.
Positive Solutions with Collaborative Divorce
Collaborative divorce is an alternative method of court-supervised divorce negotiation. Like mediation, spouses meet outside of court to negotiate the terms of their divorce agreement; however, these negotiations are still conducted with lawyers present. This allows couples to avoid the pressures and troubles of court litigation while still retaining legal counsel for the process. The spouses' attorneys present the divorce terms to a court once the negotiations are complete.
