Amicable Doesn't Mean Simple

podcast Feb 07, 2024

Are you searching for a way through divorce that is not full of conflict? Does the idea of "scorched earth" litigation fill you with anxiety? There is a better way to divorce, and it's called amicable. And that doesn't necessarily mean that you and your ex agree on everything.

On this week's podcast we have Tracy Moore-Grant, the founder of the Amicable Divorce Network. She started the Amicable Divorce Network because she wanted to facilitate low-conflict, out-of-court divorces. You can get through your divorce amicably while still protecting yourself.

What Is an Amicable Divorce? 

Did you know nearly 95% of divorces are settled out of court?

And did you know that even cases with complex financial issues can use the amicable divorce process?

Tracy and I talk about the difference between contested and uncontested divorce, and she highlights the advantages of resolving issues outside of court. In an uncontested divorce, the spouses are coming to an agreement together outside of the court. A contested divorce is one that is decided by a judge, often because the spouses cannot agree. A contested divorce is often expensive and acrimonious, and it can be particularly damaging if you have to continue to co-parent together.

Amicable Divorce is a process for an uncontested divorce, and the focus is on the PROFESSIONALS engaging with one another amicably. So even if you and your husband don't agree on the issues you're working through in the divorce, the Amicable process is available to you. The professionals can help you come to a meeting of the minds and still settle your divorce out of court.

The Amicable Divorce Network has  vetted attorneys who are resolution-focused and want to help you get to your settlement in the best way possible. There are also vetted experts within the network for those who need specific expertise in their cases.

Does an Uncontested Divorce Mean No Attorneys? 

No, an uncontested divorce process still usually includes attorneys. Divorce is a legal process, and Tracy recommends that you be represented by an experience attorney even when you and your ex are agreeing on the issues that must be decided.

The Amicable Divorce Network provides a process that allows parties to negotiate and reach a resolution with the help of experienced professionals. They emphasize the importance of having resolution-focused professionals who prioritize the clients' needs and work towards a fair and efficient resolution. Tracy shares a case example to illustrate how the amicable divorce process can successfully handle messy money issues. Listen to the podcast to hear the story.
