The Top 5 Most Common Types of Divorce
With the amount of options available for couples seeking divorce, it is best to weigh out your options with an experienced attorney before making any moves.
Here are some of the most common types of divorce you can file for in Oklahoma:
- Mediated divorce: This is a type of alternative dispute resolution method. During this process, a mediator, or neutral third-party will be brought in to help the couple negotiate until they can come to an agreement.
- Collaborative divorce: Each spouse is represented by a lawyer in this process, which asks both spouses to sign an agreement so that they will keep their matters out of court. This keeps the divorce private. If the couples cannot come to an agreement, another type of divorce may be needed.
- Uncontested divorce: This happens when both spouses are in agreement and decide to file all their paperwork together to finalize their divorce. This is typically the easiest and most inexpensive type of divorce.
- Default divorce: This is a rarity, but in this type of divorce, one spouse cannot be located or has refused to answer his/her divorce petition, so the serving spouse can petition a judge to grant a divorce by default.
- Contested divorce: This type of divorce happens when both spouses cannot come to an agreement on important decisions, including child support, assets and property division, etc. so they take their case to court. A judge will listen to both spouses during this court hearing and come to a decision.
