Different Types of Divorce
The word "divorce" has a horrible connotation. It brings to mind children being torn from their parents, drawn out battles over money and houses, and maybe even adultery and tears. Some divorces are the awful stereotypical legal battles many imagine, but the fact is, there are many different types divorce, some less involved than others.
There are at least five main types of divorce cases, including:
- No-Fault Divorce
- Fault Divorce
- Summary Divorce
- Uncontested Divorce
- Meditative Divorce
The difference between a no-fault and fault divorce is that in some states you are allowed to file for divorce when neither partner can be recognized as the party with fault. This type of divorce is called a no-fault divorce. However, some states do not have provisions for no-fault divorces, which forces one party of the marriage to place blame on the other.
Summary divorce is commonly known as a simple divorce. No divorce is actually simple, however, summary divorces are for people who have been married under five years, have no children, and have little shared property. This makes the process of dividing the couple's assets relatively easy.
Uncontested divorces are when both parties come to an agreement in or out of court about the details of the divorce. Similarly, a meditative divorce is one in which the couple agrees to use a mediator rather than a lawyer to help decide how to proceed with their divorce case.
