Even if you and your partner have decided to get a divorce, you may have agreed to work things out between yourselves amicably. As you go through the process, however, you may discover some items that have different levels of importance to each of you, and your concerns aren’t easily resolved. Before you reach out to divorce lawyers to handle the difficult parts of what is otherwise an uncontested divorce, you may wish to consider the advantages of collaborative family law.
The collaborative law process is ideal for an uncontested divorce because it allows both parties to explore their wants and needs as part of the divorce process, while also working with an experienced collaborative law team to ensure that a fair agreement is made. The collaborative law process can help determine mutually beneficial child decision-making responsibility arrangements, help manage financial agreements between spouses, and help develop the best plan of action for splitting the household.
In an uncontested divorce, even though both parties generally want what is best for everyone in the family unit, having collaborative family law professionals to assist with this process can help ensure that all needs are met and accounted for. This is also the ideal way to file the appropriate legal documents and avoid court fees that are standard with divorce proceedings that end up in court.
If you and your spouse are considering an uncontested divorce or need help settling some important issues as part of your divorce agreement, reach out to us at Collaborative Divorce Waterloo Region. We can answer your questions and work with you to achieve the best possible outcomes.
