Wondering how long does it the process take? Well let’s take a further look at the divorce process.
Divorce Process and Proceedings
The divorce process begins with one party (the petitioner) filing divorce or a complaint. The motion for divorce lays out the grounds for divorce and officially demands a divorce. The petitioner must then forward to the opposing party (the respondent) the petition for divorce and its accompanying documents. The respondent must now give a reply (response to the petition for divorce) to the petitioner within 20 days of receipt of the petition for divorce.
The Discovery Process
Discovery is a process in which each party to a case obtains facts from the other party through the rules of civil procedure. In the case of Florida divorce, the initial discovery must be shared at the end of the proceedings (within 45 days from the date of petition of the divorce or lawsuit petition). This initial discovery is called the Mandatory Discovery. Formal discovery can take place after Mandatory Discovery. Discovery may take the form of interrogatories, production requests, requests for admission and depositions.
Alternatives to Trial Process
Once a divorce has been filed, there are usually two options for a divorce to become final. If the parties are able to agree on the terms of the divorce, the parties can decide to sign a settlement agreement and ask the court to sign the agreement. If the parties are unable to settle the matter, the case will be brought to trial and the judge will decide on the issues for the parties. It should be noted that there are alternatives to waiting for the trial and costs associated with the preparation of the trial.
If, after discussions and mediation, the parties are unable to agree on the terms of their divorce, then the last remaining option is a trial (also known as the final hearing). Before the trial, you will need to attend a pre-trial conference setting out the ground rules for the case.
Alternative Options to Divorce
Now Aubrey Law understands that maybe the solution for your family might not be a Divorce. Maybe your circumstance needs another solution like a collaborative divorce or mediation.
One of these alternative solutions is traditional courtroom litigation, which can be stressful and expensive. Another is collaborative divorce, a process in which a couple work together to determine whether to settle a divorce with little or no outside intervention. The third option is mediation, which is similar to joint divorce, in that it eliminates the stress and costs of the trial. But instead of negotiating their settlement terms solely on their own, couples who divorce by mediation reach out to them through a series of negotiations mediated by a neutral third party known as a mediator.
There are many reasons why couples chose mediation over a conventional divorce court. Mediation is a form of alternative dispute resolution (ADR) that, like joint divorce, allows a couple to work together to negotiate their own divorce settlement instead of making the court decide on their problems.
To determine whether mediation is the right choice for you and your partner, consider the potential benefits as set out more clearly below. Your professional divorce lawyer will take in to account the decision to help you make the right choice. In certain cases, you may even be forced to seek counseling before you are able to litigate a divorce–the courts have the power to request a divorce from a couple. If mediation was ordered by the Court or on a voluntary basis, inform yourself about the procedure and its benefits before you start working with a divorce mediator.
It’s Less Costly Than The Proceedings Of Your Divorce
Cost savings are one of the primary benefits of mediation in divorce proceedings. Simply put, divorce is difficult. In Virginia, a complete divorce case will cost thousands of dollars in litigation. Mediation can be easier because it removes certain things that push a couple’s divorce bill up, such as investigation, deposition, jury planning, and court hearings.
You Maintain Greater Control Over The Divorce Process
Another important benefit of mediation is that it enables you to be in control of your divorce settlement. With mediation, the couple works with a mediator (and in some situations their attorneys), and a neutral third party, to reach agreements for their settlement through a series of guided discussions. The mediator does not make decisions for the couple. Rather, he or she tells them about their rights and their options regarding each component of their divorce settlement and provides guidance when questions arise as they work toward arrangements that suit their needs.
Choosing mediation does not mean you do not have to hire a divorce lawyer. You should still work with an experienced divorce lawyer to ensure that your rights and protected throughout the mediation process and afterward as you adjust to life with divorce orders in place. Further, in many mediation settings, your attorney is also encouraged to attend.
You Can Establish A Stronger Relationship With Your Partner Through Mediation
It is not uncommon for individuals who have divorced by mediation to report higher levels of satisfaction in their post-divorce relationship with their former spouses than those who have divorced through litigation. If it is necessary for you to maintain a positive relationship with your former spouse after your divorce, which is likely to be the case if you have children together, counseling may be the right option for your divorce.
