Here are a few of the available options for divorce processes and some tips about how to decide which one would work best for you.

In an uncontested divorce both parties file separate paperwork with the court before amicably parting ways.
A mediator will act as a neutral third party and listen to both sides of the story.
It is like mediation or arbitration but instead of using a neutral third party each person retains their own lawyer who specializes in collaborative law.
This is the only option for spouses who are not amicable and are unable to work together to reach a settlement.
