The difficulty level of your divorce depends on a variety of factors, but perhaps one of the most important aspects is how much you and your spouse are willing to cooperate with one another throughout the process. If you and your spouse agree to be amicable, your divorce will be much less stressful. It can be frustrating when you are trying to facilitate cooperation while your spouse has made it clear that he or she is refusing to compromise. Dealing with a combative spouse can not only make your divorce much more taxing, but it can also bring about issues that are not typically found in amicable or uncontested divorces.

Divorce, however, does not always have to be so acrimonious, as many couples who decided to go the route of collaborative law instead of traditional litigation have found.

In collaborative law, a couple will work together to mutually decide how all issues will be settled within the parameters of a dispute resolution process. The couple, along with a team of professionals, have complete control over how their marriage will end and all of the inherent considerations. They make the final decisions regarding child custody (parental responsibilities), asset and property divisions, and whatever other issues each individual couple may have to settle.
