What are the different divorce types?
When you think of divorce, what comes to mind is simply the separation of two individuals that were previously married and no longer wish to be. And, although that is certainly true, there are many ways to obtain a divorce and those depend on how well you and your soon-to-be ex-spouse are able to put aside not only your differences but also your anger and your grief in order to work together to achieve agreements on important points, such as child time-sharing and money. Being able to put aside those differences at this point can have lasting consequences not only on your financial future but also in the way you and your ex will be able to get along — particularly when there are children in the picture.
Working as easily and smoothly as a simplified divorce, an uncontested divorce means both parties have agreed on the terms, even though they might have been married for a long time. You will probably only have to appear in court once.
This happens when your spouse does not respond to the divorce filing. It can apply to situations where the other party does not respond because they are now living in parts unknown.
Years ago, for someone seeking a divorce, it was necessary to prove that the other party was at fault or had done something that caused the marriage to break down. These days, with the option of getting a no-fault divorce, you simply tell the court that there are irreconcilable differences between you.
Both you and your soon-to-be ex-spouse hire lawyers, only in this case, they work together to try and settle your divorce. All the information is shared as discussions happen to settle all points. Should the lawyers prove to be unable to work together, you are free to hire different ones.
A mediator or neutral third party helps you and your spouse to reach an agreement on all issues. The role of the mediator is not there to decide on each subject but to allow you to communicate productively. You should never attend mediation without your own attorney.
Through the use of a private judge or arbitrator hired by both of you, you agree to honor their decisions as if a judge had made them. You should never attend arbitration without your own attorney.
This type of divorce is mostly used by couples who are unable to communicate or come to an agreement on any issue. A judge must intervene to decide. If this option also does not yield the desired results, a court trial may be called upon to resolve it. If this is your case, it is vital that you get the legal guidance of divorce lawyers in Birmingham Michigan.
