Frequently Asked Questions

What can I expect from a divorce mediator?

A divorce mediator will help you and your spouse come to an agreement about the terms of your divorce. This can include things like child custody arrangements, spousal support, and division of assets. The goal is always to help you and your spouse come to an agreement that is fair and acceptable to both of you. With the help of a mediator, many couples are able to avoid the stress and expense of a traditional divorce, and reach a mutually-agreeable resolution.

Contact our marriage separation attorneys to help you get a better understanding of the mediator’s proposals and whether they are fair.

What should be included in a prenuptial agreement?

Prenuptial agreements can cover anything that is related to the finances and property of the couple. This can include things like:

  • How property will be divided if the couple gets divorced
  • How much spousal support will be paid if the couple gets divorced
  • What happens to debts and assets if one spouse dies or there is a divorce
  • What will happen to the family home in the event of a divorce or death

Of course, every couple’s situation is unique, so it’s important to talk to an experienced divorce attorney about what should be included in your prenuptial agreement.

What is the difference between a contested and uncontested divorce?

The difference between contested and uncontested divorce is whether the parties litigate or dispute divorce issues rather than settle their divorce amicably.

  • An uncontested divorce is common when parties either immediately, or after some litigation, reach a global settlement. Uncontested divorces reach final Judgment by executing a global settlement Agreement commonly referred to as a Marital Settlement Agreement (MSA).  All issues related to children, support, and property are included in a global MSA.
  • A contested divorce is when the parties cannot agree on the terms of their divorce, necessitating court intervention. In this instance, a judge decides all issues for the parties either through multiple motions or a trial.

Why would you get a legal separation instead of a divorce?

There are a few reasons why someone might choose to get a legal separation instead of a divorce. For example, the couple may want to remain married for religious reasons, or they may not have been married long enough to qualify for divorce in their state. Additionally, legal separations can be less expensive and less emotionally charged than divorces.

If you’re considering a legal separation, it’s important to consult with an expert attorney on all matters concerning divorce to discuss the options available to you.
