As with collaborative law, decisions made by individual parties are more likely to be adhered to than decisions imposed by the court. For instance, a child custody and support plan agreed to during thoughtful conversation is more likely to be accepted without reservation than a plan hammered out by dueling attorneys and imposed by the court. Amicable divorce is a means to this cooperative decision-making.
In Washington, the amicable divorce process can be used to resolve many divorce issues in ways that are less invasive than traditional court proceedings. Instead of having adversarial custody battles in court, you and your spouse decide together what is best for you and your children. Each side comes to an agreement, eliminating a loser in court decisions.
