Types of Divorce
There are two main types of divorce: contested and uncontested. An uncontested divorce is the easier option, as this means that both spouses agree on all the major issues involved. Any type of disagreement is called an uncontested divorce. It’s common for a divorce to start off as uncontested and become contested. It’s also possible for a contested divorce to mainly involve minor disagreements that can be resolved with mediation.
Mediation involves the couple and a neutral third party who helps the couple make decisions and come to agreements on important elements. While the mediator cannot give legal advice, they can answer questions and help move the process along.
A good candidate for an uncontested divorce would be a couple with no children and very few assets. If they do have assets and children, they have come to agreements on custody, support, and asset division. If there is any type of abuse to the spouse or children or there is reason to believe that one spouse is hiding income or assets, then that couple would not be a good candidate for uncontested divorce. Litigation might be necessary in this case.
How a Divorce Lawyer Can Help
Many people feel they have the knowledge to handle their own divorce. No matter how simple their divorce may seem, a divorce attorney is a good idea. They can help with the following:
- Get professional advice. State laws can be complicated and they are not always fair. A divorce lawyer can protect your interests.
- Avoid mistakes. It’s easy to make an error during the divorce process. You may miss a deadline, forget to include an asset, or assign an incorrect value to an asset. These mistakes can result in costly delays.
- Be accurate. You can draft a legal document on your own, but it may not state your true intentions. A lawyer can help you create a clear and binding agreement that is free of errors.
