Negotiate Divorce Settlement


Negotiating a divorce settlement is never an easy task. When a couple decides for a divorce, all the aspects starting from child custody, marital property to alimony has to be negotiated. Divorce is very difficult for both the parties involved in it. This can cause a low self estimation and belief. Though these factors affect the mental status of the spouses, a sense of maturity is expected from them while planning for the divorce settlement. For the negotiations to succeed one must be able to talk with his/her spouse without striking off an argument, with honesty and willingness to compromise.

Plan a strategy

Before one begin the actual negotiation process one should decide with his/her spouse when and where to negotiate. A list of issues to be negotiated, the list of documents, and the necessary information should be ready when they sit for negotiation. It would be better if the couple meet at a neutral place. By doing this, it will not bring up the old memories or distract them from their main purpose. Such issues should never be discussed in an environment that would cause discomfort.

Make the process efficient and effective

One should have a certain plan of action when going for a divorce settlement. A list of issues to be negotiated should be made, and the major issues should be attended first. All the concerns should be discussed simultaneously with patience. One should not get frustrated if all the issues are not settled in the first meeting. It might not be possible to do so. Therefore, he/she should take some points out of the meeting and carry them on to the next meeting. It therefore makes the whole process efficient and effective.

Set some ground rules
  1. One should never give up early in a negotiation. To negotiate a divorce settlement, he/she should always leave some room to bargain and compromise.
  2. Argument should be avoided as much as possible. If it canít be avoided then the argument should be meaningful. For e.g. one parent says that the child should go to the school of his/her choice whereas the other one says the other way round. This should be avoided as going to school is important rather than which school the child goes to.
  3. Some solid ground rules should be made for the discussions in advance. If the couple is meeting alone then all the topics to be discussed should be scheduled out and they should stick to that.

Divorce is not an easy task. It takes out a lot out of oneís emotions, and self belief. When a couple decides to go for a divorce, they should be aware of all its pros and cons. They should know how to negotiate a divorce settlement properly. They would be advised by all the legal people surrounding them but they would be the one to take a final call on their life.
