Consider Alternatives to Traditional Divorce
Court-litigated divorces can cost spouses time, money, and emotional suffering. Lengthy court proceedings and attorney fees can turn a divorce negotiation into an emotionally taxing and expensive process. However, there are alternative divorce methods that may help you to avoid many of the problems involved in a court-supervised divorce agreement. Two of the more effective methods are collaborative divorce and mediation.
In mediation, couples meet outside of court and work together to resolve their negotiation disputes, with or without lawyers present. A third-party mediator helps couples get their interests and needs heard, and may also draft the divorce agreement once the negotiations are complete. In a collaborative divorce, spouses and their attorneys meet outside of court to negotiate the arrangements. Once complete, the lawyers present the final agreement to a court for approval.
Mediation and collaborative divorce foster healthy communication between spouses and mutual understandings of each party's interests and needs. The more willing spouses are to communicate openly with each other, the more successful these alternative methods can be. As a skilled mediator and collaborative divorce attorney in Tustin, I am able to assist couples in reaching favorable resolutions in many different scenarios.
