Amicable Divorce

Dear Attorneys,


I want to try to reach an agreement with my spouse before I file for divorce. I think it would be more amicable this way. Can I do that? How would I go about it?



Amicable Annie


Dear Annie,

Kudos to you for trying to make your divorce as amicable as possible! Yes, you can certainly negotiate with your spouse in advancing of filing for divorce. The question you should ask yourself is whether you want to (or should be) doing this on your own, or whether you want an attorney involved. You may want to consult with an attorney first so that he or she could give you some general guidelines for negotiations and explain your options to you. Procedurally, the attorney may suggest drafting the agreement and then filing the dissolution pleadings with a waiver to waive the ninety (90) day statutory period.
