Types of Divorce
There are almost as many types of divorce as there are types of relationships. From uncontested to collaborative to contested, there are varying levels of legal support and involvement required to effectively sever the relationship.
An uncontested divorce only occurs when both parties are in agreement regarding all aspects of the split, including support, distribution of assets, and time-sharing. If you are being presented with the opportunity for an uncontested divorce, it is in your best interests to meet with an attorney who can review the agreement and ensure you are protected during the proceedings. We support you throughout the entire process or can step in to assist at any time you are having trouble, either with paperwork or negotiation.
Collaborative divorce is becoming more and more popular. Each spouse is represented by a different attorney, however much of the discussion is handled in the negotiation room rather than the courtroom. Each party is required to work together honestly, respectfully, and in good faith to find working solutions. With a collaborative divorce, if either party chooses to litigate, or if a final agreement is unable to be reached, both divorce attorneys must resign from the case. This is to ensure that the attorneys don’t stand in the way of finding amicable results in order to profit from going to trial.
Sometimes, relationships have reached a point where collaboration is no longer an option. Either communication has completely broken down or the parties simply can’t agree on a fair solution. Their case is then taken before a judge who will have the final decision regarding all aspects of the divorce. During a contested divorce is when a skilled divorce attorney can provide the most support. Caveda Law Firm, P.A. works to reduce your stress by putting their extensive legal expertise to work for you.
