Unfortunately, more and more marriages are ending in divorce. With the divorce rate steadily climbing, it’s a wonder that anyone still gets married anymore. Sometimes relationships end amicably but most often they end in a heated war over who is to blame and who gets what.

If you and your spouse have decided to end the marriage, try to remain as calm as possible. Remember, you were in love once so your spouse can’t be all bad. With a positive attitude, you’re more likely to come to an agreement so that you can both move on. Consider all the options before your divorce becomes a clash of the titans.

A collaborative divorce might be the best way to end the marriage with a minimal amount of conflict. This way you avoid the uncertainty of the outcome of a court proceeding. You will work with your lawyers and other family professionals to end the marriage with the best possible outcome.

Ideally the best way to end a marriage would be to have an uncontested divorce. This type of divorce simply means that both parties agree to all aspects of the divorce without argument. This expedites the divorce process and will quickly move through the system. The sooner that the ink is on the dotted line, the sooner you can begin to rebuild your life. Since these divorces are agreed upon by both parties, there is considerably less animosity and a chance of maintaining a friendly relationship with your ex spouse.

The contested divorce is the least appealing. This is where one or both spouses do not agree to the terms of the divorce. This is the type of divorce that usually ends up lingering on with many legal maneuvers being tossed around on both sides. This takes an emotional and financial toll on both parties and tends to increase the emotional temperature of the divorce. Discussions become heated and progress is often halted. Before you contest the terms of your divorce, you need to ask yourself some tough questions as to the validity of your claims.

Divorce is heartbreaking for all parties involved. Whenever possible, maintaining a civil relationship with your soon to be ex spouse is really the best way to being able to move on.
If you have children involved, it is even more critical that you and your spouse get along. Think with a clear head and be willing to make some concessions and your divorce not be as trying as you thought.
