Reaching An Agreement In Your Divorce

  • talk through objectives,
  • figure out what is most important to them,
  • what is realistic,
  • what kind of argument would hold up in court, and
  • best negotiation strategies.
  • Each party can have their own attorney represent their interests or have an attorney help them reach an agreement but who will not represent either parties’ specific interest.
  • Sometimes parties work on this process together, come up with an agreement and merely enter it with the Judge on their own without an attorney representing them in court. This can make for an efficient and cost-effective process.
  • Have realistic expectations
  • Put things in perspective
  • Agreements are formed through give-and-take
  • Bring up issues at the right time — wait for emotions to settle
  • Figure out what is most important to each party — what is fair and reasonable is different for everyone
  • Think of all the stress and litigation costs you will save by reaching an agreement outside of the courtroom
