33 Less-Stress Divorce

The traditional picture of divorce is a messy and painful affair where people who once loved each other proceed to tear each other apart. But just as no two marriages are alike, and neither are divorces. Many of us understand that our marriage may have come to an end but that doesn't mean that we don't still value and appreciate our spouse. In this day and age, it truly is possible to consciously separate from a marriage and peacefully, even amicably, decide the terms of how to move forward.
The traditional divorce path can be expensive, lengthy and damaging in more ways than one. But there may be a much better path forward. It is for this reason that we have developed the "Less-Stress Divorce," an easier and less-costly way to divorce.

17 What's an ICMC?

Confused

When a petition for divorce gets filed with the Court, that begins the official legal process. The first step in the Court's process is for both parties and their attorneys to meet with the Court and state the basic facts of the marriage and soon-to-be divorce. This meeting is called an Initial Case Management Conference, or an ICMC. This episode of the Podcast describes how an ICMC helps to begin the process of dividing lives (and property) and can lead to effective resolution alternatives, and ultimately to a more amicable divorce.
