With the rise of “conscious uncoupling,” “divorce selfies” and the platonic parenting trend, amicable divorces are seemingly more popular than ever. But are they actually attainable? Yes – with precautionary measures before and during the divorce process.
I always recommend getting a prenup for many reasons, including that it will be helpful during a divorce, as you have already decided the asset allocation before even walking down the aisle.
Additionally, choose an attorney you feel at ease with. Lastly, consider mediation before heading to the courtroom. It will be less expensive and likely less stressful, leading to a potentially amicable divorce.
