Many couples believe that the divorce process has to be contentious. They have no reason to believe that they can resolve all their issues in an amicable manner.
However, if you take this approach, you may soon find that it's much easier to put your relationship, as well as the divorce process, in the past once and for all.
There are many benefits of an amicable divorce, all of which may point you toward this strategy.
Generally speaking, this entails mediation as opposed to litigation. With this, you and your ex-spouse retain control over all aspects of the divorce. From child custody and support to property division, you can work on the finer details without input from the court.
Furthermore, this can save both parties a lot of time and money. It's not uncommon for mediation to lead to a resolution of all problems within a matter of weeks or months.
At our law firm, we continue to work with more people who are interested in an amicable divorce. These people realize that the best way to move past this part of their life is to work with their former spouse in an informal setting.
It's easy to believe that an amicable divorce is impossible, and in the end you may be right. However, you will never know more about this until you take a closer look at the process and finer details.
In the end, what matters most is that you are comfortable with the final details associated with the divorce. When this happens, you can look back and realize that an amicable divorce was a good decision.
