One of the positive evolutions in the field of family law is the increase of alternate dispute resolution means and their utilization for resolving a divorce case. Many of these means may allow for spouses to work in a more collaborative and less adversarial fashion toward achieving closure and moving forward productively. Engaging a mature and non-adversarial process may be particularly important and beneficial if there are young children from the marriage.
Sometimes, one may read about Hollywood celebrities who have made this commitment to work together for the benefit of their child/children. According to a People report, the divorce of acting stars Chris Pratt and Anna Faris is one example of this type of effort toward collaboration. It is important to remember, however, that, no matter how cooperative each of you seeks to be and how amicable your relationship is (even after the breakdown of the marriage), there are certain legal requirements that your divorce documents must satisfy. To make sure that your amicable divorce is not slowed down by procedural or legal errors, as well to ensure that your rights are properly protected, always make sure you have consulted an experienced South Florida family law attorney.
According to the People report, Pratt and Faris, who share a 6-year-old son, separated in August 2017. For the benefit of the son, the parents worked to achieve a divorce arrangement and post-divorce living situation in their home state of California that was geared toward being “unusually tension-free.”
