Divorce is not a simple task. Marriage is essentially a contract. As such, the parties must provide proof to the court that their marriage is irretrievably broken and beyond repair in order to be granted a divorce.

When a marriage dissolves, both parties must resolve numerous legal issues, including distribution of assets and debt and child custody and support. All these legalities can be exceedingly challenging, especially when you are experiencing one of life's greatest emotional events.

Missouri state law allows couples to choose the divorce method that best serves the unique nature of their situation. As a firm solely focused on family law, Family Law Partners possesses an in-depth understanding of all types of divorces.

Mediated Divorce

A growing trend in family law, mediated divorces rely on a neutral third-party attorney to help a couple come to agreements on any or all issues surrounding their divorce. Each party is allowed to be represented by separate counsel. Many people believe once they have mediated and resolved the issues, the case is over.

However, an attorney will need to file both the initiation and settlement paperwork. It is not uncommon for couples to only agree on some issues, leaving the rest to be resolved through litigation. Our insightful team can clarify your rights and obligations prior to going intomediation and advise you on the ramifications of settlement terms throughout the process.

Benefits of Mediated Divorce

Mediated divorce is a collaborative approach to divorce where both parties work together with a neutral mediator to reach mutually agreeable solutions.

This process offers several benefits compared to traditional contested or uncontested divorces:

  • Reduced conflict: Mediation promotes open communication and cooperation, helping to minimize conflict and hostility between divorcing spouses.
  • Cost-effective: Mediated divorces are often less expensive than litigated divorces as they typically require fewer court appearances and legal fees.
  • Control over the outcome: In mediation, both parties have a say in the decisions made, allowing for more control and flexibility in creating a divorce agreement that meets their unique needs and priorities.
  • Preservation of relationships: Mediation can help preserve relationships, especially when children are involved, by fostering a more amicable and cooperative post-divorce relationship.
  • Confidentiality: Unlike court proceedings, mediation is a private and confidential process, allowing spouses to address sensitive issues without fear of public disclosure.

At Family Law Partners, our experienced divorce attorneys are skilled in guiding clients through the mediated divorce process, ensuring a fair and equitable resolution while prioritizing the well-being of all parties involved. Contact us today to learn more about how mediated divorce can be the right choice for your situation.

Contested Divorce

About 1 in 4 divorces end up in contested litigation. Having 45 years of combined experienced, our trial attorneys are fully prepared to help you navigate the lengthy court process. We act with professionalism during the negotiation process in order to provide you with insight on how to proceed with your case.

We take pride in the preparation work we undergo to get your case ready for trial. This involves in-depth discovery in order to identify key evidence and witnesses, depositions, testimony, and exhibit preparation. Most importantly, we stay involved with our clients so they not only understand the proceedings, but feel prepared at every court hearing.

Uncontested Divorce

When both spouses reach an agreement regarding all related elements in the divorce, they can proceed with an uncontested divorce. However, even amicable divorces are still governed by family court legalities. The necessary paperwork needs to be drafted properly to include all of the necessary statutory elements, filed with the court, and eventually signed by the judge.

Hiring an attorney for this task can not only expedite this process, but also ensure that the paperwork filing is proper and takes into consideration all legal aspects of the agreement. Both parties should be represented by separate counsel to prevent a conflict of interest.
