Collaborative Divorce in Westlake Village
Uncontested Divorce Cases in Westlake Village & Thousand Oaks
Many people assume that
divorce always involves aggressive litigation and courtroom battles over
spousal support, and other such issues, but this is not always the case. Many couples
are able to dissolve their marriages by pursuing an uncontested divorce.
This means that they draft their own divorce agreement outside of the
courtroom without litigation, only going to court once to present their
agreement to a judge who can enter their divorce judgment and finalize
the divorce. One form of uncontested divorce is known as collaborative law.
Understanding the Process
By choosing collaborative law to obtain a divorce, both spouses must agree
to get a divorce and must be willing to negotiate every aspect of their
divorce agreement without litigation. The moment there is an irreconcilable
disagreement on any issue, the case becomes contested and must go to court.
Through collaborative law, each spouse retains their own divorce attorney
to counsel them through the process of drafting their agreement. There
is no representation - only legal counsel and guidance to ensure that
no aspect is overlooked. Once the agreement is complete, the two spouses
will go before a judge to have the agreement entered as a divorce judgment.
