The Constructive Alternative To Contested Divorce

Contested divorces, especially those involving significant marital assets and those that go to court, are expensive propositions. Court costs, attorney fees, money spent on forensic accounting if hidden assets are involved — it all adds up.

On the other hand, a DIY divorce is rarely a good idea. Divorcing spouses need solid legal support alongside them to ensure that a fair and favorable outcome is possible.

The third choice, a positive alternative that saves money, reduces stress and sets a tone of cooperation for the future, specifically where children are involved ... is mediation. Divorce mediation encourages a free exchange of ideas, control of your own destiny (as opposed to surrendering it to strangers in a courtroom) and collaboration on practical, private solutions rather than airing grievances in open court.
