Going through a divorce isn’t always easy, but the good news is that there are things that can help. From going through mediation to allowing a judge to determine the outcome of your case, there are always things that can be done to resolve a divorce.
One of the most difficult things to deal with is a divorce that is not going to plan. It’s already hard to deal with the financial and emotional difficulties of divorce, but struggling with arguments with your spouse is a whole different situation.
What can you do if your spouse won’t agree to any terms of divorce?
There are some spouses who will not agree to anything their spouses want during a divorce out of spite. If you’re in a relationship with someone like that, it can be hard to move forward with the divorce. However, it is possible.
If the other party refuses to go through mediation but would be willing to allow a judge to decide the case, then your job is to get together as much information as you can to show the nature of your spouse and why you’ve had to turn to the judge. Being able to show that your spouse isn’t willing to cooperate can help you in many aspects of the case, from child custody to dividing your assets.
No divorce is simple, but a contentious divorce is always going to be harder to deal with. Your attorney can help you prepare for court, so you get as much as possible out of your marriage despite your spouse’s best efforts.
