What To Know About The Amicable Divorce Process

 Posted on March 09,2023 in Divorce

IL divorce lawyerIf you and your partner decide that the best way to go forward is to get a divorce, your biggest fear may revolve around how difficult and taxing the process will be and potentially become. While it is true that many divorces become stressful and complicated, if both parties are willing and able to cooperate and negotiate, you can reach a resolution that satisfies both parties. For parties to get an amicable divorce, they should approach it in a way that prevents any future conflicts from taking over.

Ways To Reach an Amicable Divorce

Being able to have an amicable divorce relies on the behaviors of both parties. Here are a few ways that can make an amicable divorce more likely:

  • Couples therapy - In most cases, couples will attempt couples therapy before deciding on a divorce, but if, even after the decision, both parties are willing to attend couples therapy, it could save the marriage. If not, couples therapy can help the parties better understand each other's needs and wants for the future.
  • Working on communication - Amicable divorce depends on two people being willing to speak freely and respectfully to each other. Each party should work on communication with each other and be able to express their needs and wants clearly. Each party should also be willing to listen to each party's perspective and work to identify solutions that meet both parties' needs and desires.
  • Children's needs - Focusing on a party's child's needs and wants can help prevent the parties from approaching their divorce with selfish intent. It can also encourage parties to seek solutions that impact the entire family in a positive sense. It is essential to focus on the influence that a divorce will have on the spouses and how it will influence their children.
  • Collaborative solutions - Sources such as mediation can help parties maintain an amicable divorce, leaving the significant decision-making power in the hands of someone who can guide you through this stressful time. Mediation can help parties create productive communication.
