No Two Divorces Are The Same

The end of a marriage is a difficult time. Divorces occur for myriad reasons and while some couples are able to get through the process amicably and with very little conflict, for others, that is just not possible. At Cross Glazier Reed Burroughs, PC, we understand that every situation is unique and we will tailor our strategy to best fit your individual needs.

Working Together To Reach An Agreement

In an uncontested divorce, both parties are on board with the dissolution of their marriage. There are certainly advantages to both parties working cooperatively in reaching a divorce settlement. The collaborative process means avoiding a costly court battle. Terms can be decided either independently or with the help of a skilled negotiator. The parties retain great control over the issues when it comes to deciding things like parenting time, spousal support and the division of assets.

Letting The Court Decide

When there are issues that both sides simply cannot agree on, the matter often ends up going to trial as a contested divorce. That is why you need an experienced and skilled litigator on your side. A judge will listen to both sides and decide on an equitable solution. While the outcome is out of the parties’ hands, participating in the court process does mean that each person will have to divulge all of their financial documents, which can prevent assets from being hidden.
