Is it Possible to Have an Amicable Divorce?


ANSWER:  Do you want to save grief and money? Minimize the negative impact on your kids? Every divorce does not have to be acrimonious and contentious. It IS possible to have a peaceful divorce -- sometimes called the “amicable divorce" or the "uncontested divorce."


The idea of a “Friendly Divorce” may seem like an oxymoron. But it doesn’t mean you have to be friends. It just means you are willing to cooperate in order to minimize the expense and grief.


EXAMPLE: Just recently, I was able to finalize a friendly, peaceful divorce with a young mom and her spouse with a very young child and a house to divide, all for a very reasonable fee which was NOT in the thousands of dollars.


In order to have an amicable divorce, you need:


A) A Michigan divorce attorney with lots of experience, and

B) A “peaceful understanding" with your soon-to-be ex-spouse. You need to be willing to set aside the hurt and anger in order to get through the process without a knock-down, drag-out battle.


Don't try those "do it yourself" forms. This is the most important set of documents in your life! Let a specialist do it.


Got kids, a house and custody to work out? DON’T PANIC. As long as YOU have an agreement with your spouse (or are close to an agreement) and you NEED HELP to put it all together, CALL William J. Reisdorf, the family law attorney in Troy, MI with over 36 years of experience to put it together for you for a reasonable and fair fee. 


Can you have one attorney handle your peaceful divorce without both you and your spouse each hiring a separate attorney? The answer is YES. I can start with one spouse, put together all the paperwork, and answer all questions from both parties; but under Michigan law I must represent only one party. If both parties agree to everything, however, there is usually no problem. Each spouse has all questions answered, and there is nothing but cooperation, understanding, and closure! Each of you gets to move on with your life.
