Hearing the word divorce will likely conjure up mental images of fighting and strife. The truth is that divorces can be very amicable if the parties involved decide to work together for the mutual goal of legally ending the marriage. The issue that might come up is that both parties have to make this decision. If only one person wants an amicable end and the other is focused on making life difficult, the latter will likely make this a nightmare.
Two of the most common ways to hash out the divorce terms is to go through mediation or to use the collaborative process. In both of these, you and your ex will discuss the matters at hand and try to agree on what solution is agreeable. This might take some back and forth but it will be worth the effort.
