Consider Using a Collaborative Divorce
Many couples believe they have no choice but to endure the emotional and financial troubles of a court-litigated divorce because they were unaware of their options. One effective method of alternative dispute resolution is collaborative divorce, which allows couples to negotiate the terms of their divorce agreement outside of court.
With their attorneys present, spouses give full disclosure of their assets and communicate their needs and interests to one another or to their attorneys. This method of divorce can eliminate the need for lengthy court proceedings and fees. When spouses reach an agreement, their lawyers draft the finalized divorce arrangements and submit it to a judge for approval.
Mediating Your Divorce and Marital Arrangements
Mediation is an alternative method of divorce that can minimize disputes and foster amicable arrangements. Spouses meet outside of court and negotiate their terms with guidance from a neutral third-party mediator who can help spouses get their interests heard, and brainstorm solutions for the couple. Retaining a lawyer during mediation is optional, but not required.
A skilled mediator has working knowledge of the law and should not only be able to answer questions, but also provide effective solutions in order to help couples reach mutually-beneficial arrangements. Mediation can be used in most marital arrangements, including pre-nuptial agreements and post-judgment modifications.
