Types Of Divorce And What They Mean


January 23, 2010  

There are many different types of divorce that are around today. For the most part today we will be talking about the major types. Which is going to be the no fault divorce, this type of divorce is used by all but a couple of the fifty states of the United States of America.

The first type of divorce that we are going to talk about today is the uncontested. This type of divorce is where there is no party at fault. This is usually the type of divorce that occurs when to people just do not love each other anymore and just want to get it over with.

The uncontested divorce is said to be the choice of at least 95% of Americans today. It is for this reason that we will go into a little bit more detail as to exactly what an uncontested divorce actually and the different types it incorporates.

The general idea of an uncontested divorce is for the two involved parties to get together before going to a court hearing and hash out the differences and details of who gets what and when. More times than not the two involved will talk to each other first about what they want and then they will go see the lawyer. The lawyer more times than not will be of joint hiring.

Within the no fault divorce category there are many different types of divorces. Two that we will be talking about briefly are the mediated and the collaborative.

The mediated divorce is a type of uncontested divorce that takes the getting together step a step further. The mediation process typically involves the two parties, the divorce lawyers and the mediator. Sometimes the mediator will also be the acting divorce lawyer for the two parties.

Another type of divorce that does not require you to bring in all of the divorce lawyers is the collaborative divorce. This type of divorce is very similar to that of a mediated divorce in that the people present are the two parties, an attorney and a financial specialist or adviser. Where this type of divorce differs from the mediated is that if the collaborating ends then the two parties must get new lawyers.
