Legal Separation : Some couples choose legal separation without ever moving on to divorce for religious, economic or other reasons. For most couples, however, legal separation is the period before a divorce becomes final. During this time, a separation agreement will specify who lives where, how bills are paid, and whether there will be any spousal maintenance (alimony).
Uncontested Divorce : If both partners want to get divorced and can agree on the division of property (and custody, if there are children), then you can seek an uncontested divorce. Many couples want to go the route of an uncontested divorce for cost reasons, but it’s wise to work with an attorney to ensure you understand your rights and have not unnecessarily sacrificed your financial interests.
Contested Divorce : If you and your former partner cannot reach agreement on some of the issues that must be decided during divorce — property division, spousal support or child custody — then your divorce is “contested” and will need to go to mediation or to family court. Attorney Carolyn Young can help you find a mediator and can attend mediation with you. She is prepared to take your case to court if that is the best way to reach a favorable resolution.
