Negotiating a divorce settlement

Georgia couples who are facing the end of their marriages might want to negotiate a settlement agreement rather than having a judge make the decisions. For some, the process can be more amicable than for others, but in all cases, walking into negotiation sessions prepared is the key to successfully completing the process without it dragging on and having costs mount up.

There are certain things people can do to prepare for the divorce settlement negotiations. The first is to be clear about their wants and needs. This includes making a budget that realistically addresses what they want their life post-divorce to look like. Then, they can prioritize what they need and want and go into the negotiations with a clear idea of what is most important to them. In addition, the more a person knows about the other party's needs and wants, the easier the proceedings might go.

Walking in prepared also means knowing their own financial situation. Before any negotiations for support can be made, it is a good idea to know exactly how much people need to live, what they can afford to pay or what they need to receive and what their overall financial situation will be after the divorce.

Understanding what legal rights each person has is also important before negotiations. Finally, it is good to walk in with an idea of what the best case and worst case scenarios would be if a judge were to be making these determinations. In many cases, the negotiation process can be facilitated by the assistance of the couple's respective attorneys.
