It may come as a shock to learn that your California divorce can be handled without acrimony. Especially in the immediate period after one spouse files the petition for divorce, emotions tend to run high.
One spouse may not even want the divorce to proceed and might try to throw up roadblocks that slow progress and negotiation to a crawl. That can foment some bad feelings between the soon-to-be exes. However, there are ways to encourage cooperation and help motivate the parties to reach an accord.
