Is an uncontested divorce for me?

Your friends and family members, as well as the information you have learned from this blog, may have convinced you an amicable divorce is the best way to end your marriage. However, you and other Californians should understand that the chances of success with an uncontested divorce depend on numerous factors.

Understanding amicable divorce

At the Law Office of Lily L. Huang in California, we know that more and more of today’s couples prefer to end their marriages amicably rather than via a traditional litigated divorce. If you and your spouse fit that description, you should realize that you have two options: a mediated divorce and a collaborative divorce.

What is uncontested divorce?

It is hard to end a marriage. When you walked down the aisle, maybe you were in heels that echoed through the cathedral hall with every step or perhaps you walked barefooted with toes sunken into the sands of a California beach. Either way, the day was dreamy, and you hoped to make it work "until death do us part."

What is collaborative divorce?

If you are a California resident contemplating divorce, you and your spouse, despite your differences, probably are dreading the prospect of an expensive contentious court battle. If you would prefer a more amicable approach, a collaborative divorce may be just what you are looking for.

How can I make my divorce amicable?

Divorces, unfortunately, do not always bring out the best in California couples. Anger, fear and grief are common when a marriage is in the process of being dissolved. Sometimes these emotions make the divorce a contentious process for all involved. However, it does not have to be this way. The American Psychological Association spells out strategies that couples can use to reach a more amicable divorce.

Assessing the advantages of mediation

Divorce proceedings can certainly become messy affairs if those participating in them in San Jose allow them to be. Often, the contention in such cases may arise from one spouse not wanting to end a marriage. His or her thinking may be that if he or she refuses the comply, the case cannot go forward. Unfortunately, according to the website for state's Judicial Branch, California is among those that classify themselves as "no-fault" states when it comes to divorce. What this means is that one spouse does not need to have grounds for divorce (other than irreconcilable differences) in order to seek for the immediate end of a marriage. In such cases, proceedings are held regardless of whether or not a dissenting spouse participates.
