When faced with divorce, you have a lot to consider. Divorce can be a complicated and emotional process. Depending on a couple’s amicability, a marriage can be resolved in a variety of ways. When a couple can work together, they may choose to engage in the process of a Collaborative Divorce or a Mediated divorce. A Collaborative Divorce is when a couple, their attorneys, and a team of neutral experts come together to negotiate the terms of the divorce and end the matter efficiently and effectively. Other amicable couples choose Mediation. Mediation is when spouses meet with a third party(Mediator) to negotiate the terms of the divorce and end their matter effectively and efficiently. When a divorce is too much for the parties and they cannot agree to meet and settle the terms of the divorce, they will go to court and resolve their issue through a contested divorce case.

When a couple wants to avoid litigation and end their marriage, they often look towards the process of Collaboration Divorce. One of the most popular methods of alternative dispute resolution, Collaborative Divorce allows for couples to end their marriage in a cost-effective and time-saving way. Through meetings including two clients and their respective Collaborative Attorneys, the group will work together, respectfully, to achieve their mutual goals.
Mediation is becoming a popular way to end a marriage and avoid the downside of litigation. When a couple feels they can come together to respectfully and constructively negotiate issues that would be otherwise decided by a judge, the whole family benefits. The process lessens the impact on children, the outcome is easier to bear, and the couple and court save time and money. For those who are interested in the process of mediation, you may have some questions about the process and the role of the mediator.
When a couple cannot meet and come to amicable terms, they may find themselves in the courtroom in front of a judge. When a couple litigates their divorce, they are exposed to a judge who will make decisions on relevant issues, including child support, child custody, alimony, and property distribution. A litigated divorce costs a family more time and money that alternative dispute resolution and can have a devastating impact on the whole family.
