Three Ways to Resolve a Divorce

Our divorce attorney in Broward County at the Law Office of Jerome P. Ventura, we have handled all types of divorce matters. From simple uncontested matters to complex cases. We have the experience to help our clients obtain better outcomes.

The three methods of resolving divorce disputes are:

  1. Divorce Lawyer in Pembroke PinesUncontested – Uncontested divorces are divorces where the parties are in agreement and they need an experienced divorce attorney to draft, file and appear in court with all of the necessary agreed documents to resolve their case. It is important to note that an attorney in Florida may not represent both parties in a divorce and it is necessary that one party retain an attorney to present and negotiate documents to be presented to the other side and then the court. This process is usually the least expensive method of obtaining a divorce.
  2. Mediation—Couples on amicable terms can often reach agreement on some of the issues involved in their divorce by involving a mediator. Couples work with a trained mediator to reach an agreement. Mediated divorces are usually less expensive and less stressful for divorcing couples and their children.
  3. Litigation—In less amicable circumstances, couples enter contested divorce. In these situations, spouses may go to trial where a family court judge makes the final decisions.

How to Navigate Your Divorce

Divorce is not just about ending your marriage. It is about securing sufficient support for yourself and your children. It is about deciding who gets to keep the house, how to divide retirement accounts and what property you should fight for. It is also about avoiding some common mistakes than can cost you both emotionally and financially.

During the divorce process, it can be very difficult to keep things in proper perspective. By following the tips below, you can make your divorce easier.

  • Divorce is not the time to maintain a friendship. No matter how much you want to maintain a friendship with your ex-spouse, the chances are high that each of you are experiencing a wide range of emotions. Be sure to set some strong boundaries so that you are each free to move on.
  • Build a team. Going through your divorce alone can hurt you financially and mentally. Instead of trying to do everything yourself, enlist a strong team of professionals and support. This might include a financial adviser, a therapist, family members and friends. By surrounding yourself with the right people, you can make better decisions with respect to your divorce settlement, custody issues and even staying healthy through the process.
  • Take your time. Do not rush it. Divorce is a major decision that is the first of many other major decisions. By deciding where you want to live and what you need to maintain some semblance of your current living situation, you can create a budget that will help you make decisions in terms of property division. Also, be sure that you are receiving the appropriate financial information, such as property valuations that account for present and future tax consequences.
  • Express your emotions. Whatever emotions you are experiencing, be sure you are expressing them in a healthy way instead of keeping them bottled up. While you do not want to make any decisions fueled by these emotions, you will certainly want to find a positive outlet for them. Find a method that works for you so that these emotions do not control any part of your decision-making during the divorce process
  • Don't let divorce keep you down. If your divorce is taking over your every waking moment and works its way into every conversation, it is time to start regaining control of your life. When you start thinking about your divorce outside of your attorney's office or a therapy session, try to switch your thinking to something more positive so that the negativity does not dominate.
