Finding Solutions In Amicable And Agreed/Uncontested Divorces

You might be one of the lucky individuals who, while going through a divorce, is still able to work cooperatively with your spouse. Even if you do not agree on everything, you can still pursue agreed/uncontested divorce solutions.

At Akiona Law, PLLC, we offer representation tailored to meet our clients’ individual needs, including those that allow for use of mediation as a means for dispute resolution in amicable and uncontested divorces.

The Benefits Of Settling Things Out Of Court

A judge in court can help when negotiation of agreements has proven fruitless, but much is lost when a judge hands down decisions regarding your personal and family life. Even when a case is skillfully presented and argued, a judge only has a limited understanding of what your family needs. As a result, the decisions made are often less personalized and fail to fully reflect the divorcing couple’s goals.

Furthermore, courtroom fees can become very expensive, and the inability to make headway in finding an agreement only draws out the expense further. If you have the opportunity to work out your problems cooperatively outside of court, you will likely save money, time and yourself from ineffective divorce resolutions related to child custody, child support, spousal support, property division and any other issue you face.

Viable Options For Those Who Are Not In A Married Relationship

Alternative dispute resolution can be particularly effective in cases where the law is unclear or would act unfavorably for you and your spouse or significant other such as in cases with unmarried parents who have a child in common.

Divorce issues are complex. You need to know that your rights will be protected and that efforts will be exhausted while still saving you time and money. This is our goal as your team of family law attorneys.

Why Choose Us For Your Divorce

If you can obtain the divorce paperwork online, you probably are wondering why you would need an attorney for your divorce. Even with the simplicity of Washington’s online divorce forms, it is essential to work with an experienced divorce lawyer to help:

  • Protect your interests: A number of choices are to be made in uncontested divorces. We can be there to help you understand your rights and options so that you can make intelligent decisions that will benefit you in the long term.
  • Handle disputes that arise: Many couples who start on the uncontested divorce route find themselves in the middle of disputes that they did not see coming, which may result in a highly contested divorce. Our team can help you prepare for and handle these conflicts when they arise.
  • Reach an agreement, and mediate any outstanding issues: To qualify for an uncontested divorce in Washington, the divorce needs to actually be uncontested, meaning there are no matters in the divorce that the couple still disagrees on. Some generally uncontested divorces have one or two lingering issues that the couple cannot resolve, like child custody, as well as child support or spousal support. Through mediation, we can help you resolve these issues in the most efficient and cost-effective manner possible.
