Alternative Divorce Options

Last Updated : April 2, 2024

If you and your spouse are considering a divorce, then you have probably heard of uncontested and contested divorce. However, there are alternatives to these traditional forms of divorce, and becoming knowledgeable about other options can help you make the best decision for your situation. The attorneys of Arenson Law Group, PC can help any Cedar Rapids couple review their situation and decide which form of divorce may be right for them.

Common Alternatives

There are several common alternatives to contested and uncontested divorce, and one of them may be preferable when considering the factors that surround your situation. These alternatives include the following:

  • Simplified Divorce
  • Collaborative Divorce
  • Mediated Divorce

Simplified divorce involves no court proceedings and tends to be the fastest and least expensive form of divorce. Collaborative divorce and mediated divorce both involve a third-party objective person to negotiate divorce terms, and they often involve a family law attorney. Whichever  method you think might be right for you, it’s important to have competent representation so that your rights and interests are protected.
