The Kitchen Table approach to divorce is the most informal of all the options—and works well for low-conflict partnerships. With this method, a couple sits down “at the kitchen table” and amicably agrees to arrangements for spousal support, division of assets and debts, child support, parenting time, and any other relevant issues. Then, unless the parties agree to use the pro se divorce process through the court, at least one party will retain an attorney to formally, and legally, document their agreements and facilitate the judicial process. It’s important to understand, however, that even if all of the agreements have been reached, and the situation is affable, it’s advisable for each party to have independent legal advice about the legal aspects of the settlement.
Committed to holistic law practices, our team at Carter Family Law Group enjoys helping clients with this type of divorce proceeding as well.
