Not Every Divorce Requires Litigation
Not every divorce has to be contested, contentious, costly or long. When parties choose to negotiate, work together and come to an amicable agreement, such hardships of divorce can be avoided altogether. Through a negotiated or mediated marriage settlement agreement, parties can decide for themselves how their divorce issues will be resolved. This is in stark contrast to a judge making the final decision for the spouses. In a marriage settlement agreement, the parties get the final say-so.
Consider moving on with your life in an amicable and efficient manner. Especially when there are children involved, you want to ease tensions if at all possible in order to facilitate a smoother transition for them.

Marriage Settlement Agreements
A marriage settlement agreement established in an uncontested divorce is a contract that stipulates how the divorce will be accomplished with regard to the following:
- Child custody/visitation
- Parenting plans
- Child support
- Equitable distribution/property division
- Divorce mediation and uncontested divorce
- Payment of attorneys’ fees
Even if your divorce has started out rocky, it does not have to continue or end that way. Using negotiation and mediation, parties can come to a resolution on all applicable divorce issues. Once a marriage settlement agreement has been reached by both parties, it must be reviewed by a judge who will rule on it. If the judge approves the marriage settlement agreement, there is just a final hearing to receive a divorce decree.
Our firm will work with you to determine your specific goals and the best way to achieve it. We never push our clients to go with one divorce option. Instead, we actively listen to your needs and help advise you to the best possible solutions for your particular case.
