It’s Not Only Possible, but Beneficial, to Attempt an Amicable Divorce

When you hear the word divorce, it’s not unusual to think about strong feelings: bitterness, acrimony and vengeance. Sure, emotions may be flying high. There are many questions to ask – and answer – and many decisions to make. However, when the two spouses can agree to disagree and work together to end their marriage amicably, there doesn’t have to be a legal bloodbath.

Whether the issue is about money and assets or, perhaps more importantly, the welfare of your children, it is possible to go through a divorce without screaming and name-calling. Civility can prevail. Collaborative law divorce will allow you to settle matters more quickly and likely less expensively than a traditional divorce. In an effort to buck trends and endeavor a kinder, gentler divorce, here are a few things to consider:

Maturity and Mutual Respect

You started out, hopefully, in love. You grew apart – for whatever reason. Try to hold onto the respect you once had for each other, even if it has waned now. Communication is the key.

Remember the Children

When in doubt, put your children first. Even if you feel you have many reasons to dislike you spouse at the moment, your children need you to be strong. A messy divorce can inflict lasting emotional trauma on the children and cause them to form negative perceptions of marriage in their adult lives.

Choose an Emotionally Mature Attorney

When hiring a divorce attorney, it’s important to choose someone with the experience and knowledge to assist you with your desire to do this amicably. However, you also need someone who will be by your side if, and when, you need to play hardball.

Hiring the right attorney to represent your divorce case is one of the most important decisions you will ever make! I was fortunate enough to hire Ron to handle my case and had what I believe to be a favorable outcome. I based my opinion on achieving the goals we set in the beginning of the case and comparing my final outcomes to friends and colleagues that went through the process with other attorneys. Thank you Ron! Craig
It seemed like my case took forever but I trusted Ron Grazaino and listened to what he had to say. Mr Graziano said that the insurance company was not being fair and that we should go to trial. The trial was very nerve racking however he eased my mind and killed them with proof and knowledge. My outcome of my trial brought me to tears of joy. I could never imagine such a good outcome. Listen to him, have faith and you too will be impressed. Robin
