Infographic: 3 Types of Divorce Cases A Lawyer Handles
There are many reasons for divorce, including marrying young, limited education and income, living together before a commitment to marriage, cheating on partner and feelings of insecurity. A contested divorce, this well-known type involves both the partners hire separate attorneys and take disputable issues in front of the court for the judge to come up to an ideal decision. The formal process involves settlement negotiations, hearings etc.
A collaborative divorce is another form of resolving contention between a divorcing spouse without bringing the court into the frame. This type of divorce involves both spouses retaining their own legal counsel, an attorney with a special focus on collaborative law. On the other hand, an uncontested divorce relies on both spouses working together to hammer out the terms and try to resolve the dispute. Such a process involves both file separate paper work with the court before going their separate ways peacefully.
