Help From a Dedicated Boca Raton Divorce Attorney

Ending a marriage can be one of the most stressful legal situations couples face.  Many couples divorcing in Boca Raton or throughout Florida do not realize how much control they have to eliminate many of the issues to gain a more successful future.  The key is negotiation.

Two Basic Types of Divorce

For couples in Boca Raton, Delray Beach, Deerfield Beach, and Boynton Beach, FL, choosing the appropriate type of divorce is based on the willingness and ability of both spouses to put their emotions aside to negotiate.  From this point of view, there are basically two types of divorce:

  • Uncontested divorce:  Couples who agree to many or all terms of their divorce can use several methods to negotiate the details of their divorce.  Negotiations are typically handled with the assistance of attorneys and impartial mediators, using such methods as divorce mediation or a relatively new method—collaborative divorce.  Couples who negotiate an uncontested divorce typically walk away amiably, resulting in a stronger future for themselves and their children. 
  • Contested divorce:  Unfortunately, not all marriages can end amiably.  Serious problems may exist that eliminate any possibility of negotiating the terms of a divorce.  A contested divorce, where both spouses retain attorneys who present their cases before a judge, may be the only option when couples have a very adversarial relationship.
