When you and your spouse can agree on the terms of your divorce, you can have what’s called an uncontested divorce. The beautiful thing about this type of divorce in New Jersey is that you can avoid the courtroom. Not only will that save you a ton of time, but it will also save you money.
The idea of an uncontested divorce that skips the courtroom is nice, but how can you come to an agreement with your soon-to-be ex-spouse? Here are some tips:
- Leave the Grudges Behind You—We get it, a marriage that is looking down the barrel of a divorce is never a fun place to be. Arguments that were once small are now huge, and maybe one or both of you made some mistakes. Forget all that stuff. You are not here to exact revenge. If you really need revenge, get it by finding happiness after your marriage. This thing is over, and you are not at this point to hash over why it’s over but rather the logistics of how it ends.
- Come to Negotiate—In your mind, there may be a few things that are non-negotiable. Maybe your mother’s collection of Snoopy bowls is very important to you, and that’s fine but go in assuming that everything is negotiable, at least to a degree.
- Be Ready to Compromise—Making compromises is key. You are not going to get to keep everything. Neither is your spouse. Be prepared to give stuff up to get to a spot where you will both be happy.
- Don’t Try to Win—Many people go into a divorce and they want to win. Sports can be a great metaphor for a lot of things, but it doesn’t apply here, and that mentality will suck the air right out of the room. If you need a victory condition, then consider staying out of court a win.
- Think About the Kids—If you and your spouse have kids, that’s okay, a lot of people seeking a divorce do. Be sure you are thinking about what’s best for them as you are making plans for custody and child support.
- Control What You Can Control—Ultimately, it takes two people to keep a divorce out of the courtroom. Be the best person you can be during negotiations, be reasonable, and try to make compromises. The only thing you can control is yourself. If you can keep your cool now, even if things head to a courtroom (they often don’t), then you will already be in a better position and a better state of mind to handle your divorce in court.
