Divorce can be a low-conflict process, especially if people keep a few things in mind. (1) The judges are to make parenting plans in the best interests of the children, and if parents also take this viewpoint, then their views can converge on the needs of the children. Their divergent views of each other can be set aside, and need not ever be resolved, for the marriage to be dissolved. Everyone can move on. (2) The judges are to make a just and equitable division of all assets and liabilities, whether the judge ultimately finds the property or debts to be community or separate property. Parties can step back, and ask themselves: “What would look fair to a detached stranger?” While “wants” diverge, what truly is “just and equitable” is likely to converge.
