San Jose couples like you who have decided to split up may want to make things as easy as possible by having an uncontested divorce. At the Law Office of Lily L. Huang, we will discuss ways to help facilitate this.
First of all, mediation can indeed help you reach an amicable divorce. By definition, an amicable divorce occurs when the divorce is uncontested and doesn’t need to be brought to court. Though there may still be ups and downs and heated moments, the overall end result is that you and your ex-spouse will be able to reach agreements on all important matters of the divorce without the intervention of a court. Important matters can include:
- Alimony payments
- Child support payments
- Child custody arrangements
- The division of assets
Naturally, with so many things that you need to agree on, you will be running into hurdles, setbacks, and arguments. This is where mediators can come in handy. They, along with other divorce mediation tools, can help you and your spouse overcome these hurdles and disagreements to reach conclusions that you both find tolerable. It’s important to note that having these tools does not mean you will be able to avoid conflict entirely; they can simply help you overcome said conflict.
