If a married couple has decided on getting divorced, the process may seem daunting and uncomfortable. However, it can be done efficiently, but there may still be a lot of emotional difficulty involved. It’s important to note that divorce is a last resort in a marriage.
If it’s a civil marriage, it needs to be dissolved by a court, and like a court case, good grounds for the divorce have to be given. Divorce isn’t a do-it-yourself matter. It is important to know the difference between Divorce Litigation and Divorce Mediation and why you should opt for the latter of the two.
- Confrontational & hostile
- Lengthy and time consuming
- Attorneys fight for your rights
- Judge decides your case
- Emotionally taxing
Litigation takes time. If you want a quick solution to deal with your divorce, this is not the way to go. Litigation can take months, even years, often with frustrating results and always with higher lawyer fees. Whether it’s anger, the countless attorney bills, or just the hope of getting everything over with, this tedious process tends to take its toll. Even worse, your children are ultimately affected by this stressful time, which is the last thing any parent wants.
- Cost effective
- Less time consuming and stressful
- Empowering and fair
- Convenient and flexible
- Private and Confidential
Mediation is flexible and confidential. It gives you and your spouse a way to settle the conflict between you in a way that helps you to work together as parents. This is extremely important if you have children and must interact with your ex-spouse after you are divorced.
