What To Expect, What to Do
While divorces have potential to be confrontational and difficult, the reality is that most divorces do not end up in a trial. Our experience has shown that more often than not the parties involved, together with their respective attorneys, work cooperatively to come to a settlement that is acceptable to both sides. This is usually accomplished through the process of mediation, which typically reduces the time, cost, and emotional turmoil each party needs to endure. Mediation has an additional benefit of a better financial outcome for both parties, as it is typically far less expensive than a traditional divorce proceeding. Our experienced family and divorce law attorneys have experience with the divorce mediation process, and will diligently pursue this course of action if it is at all possible.
