Negotiating With Your Spouse During An Uncontested Divorce In Florida

If you want to get an uncontested divorce in Florida, both parties will need to come to some agreements. The whole idea of an uncontested divorce in Florida is that both parties agree to get through the divorce as peacefully as possible. Of course, it may require some negotiating with your spouse to come to agreements on all the issues of your divorce (property distribution, child custody, etc.), but if you follow these tips, negotiations will be smoother. 

  • Don’t rush through it—Yes, one of the advantages of an uncontested divorce in Florida is that it’s fairly quick and easy. However, don’t get in such a rush to get divorced. Remember, you’re going to have to live with the outcome of your negotiations, so you need to make sure you’re truly happy with them. Take your time and get it right.
  • Don’t focus on the negative—In the beginning, there will probably be things you don’t agree on. That’s okay. Get started with the issues that you can come to an agreement on. This helps you get the negotiations started on the right foot.
  • Set an agenda for your meetings—Whenever you meet with your spouse, make sure you have a basic agenda to guide you through your meetings. For example, you could have a meeting in which you specifically want to discuss coming to a child custody agreement. Stick to the agenda so you don’t waste time and energy.
  • Don’t involve the kids in the negotiation process—Your kids don’t need to be around during these meetings with your spouse. This only further complicates the situation, making things harder on everyone involved.
