Here are some questions you may have about alternative divorce methods:
What is divorce mediation?
Mediation is conducted outside of the courtroom and allows for a more informal and relaxed environment that many couples may favor over litigation. Mediation allows both spouses to have their voices heard. Mediation involves an unbiased third party who will negotiate the terms of the divorce. The third party will assist both spouses in reaching a compromise that will benefit both parties. This can often be concluded in a few sessions.
What is collaborative divorce?
Collaborative divorce is an alternative divorce method that may be chosen by spouses because it gives them the time and power over their divorce matters. A collaborative divorce includes both spouses signing a form that states that they are willing to make the process work. The process will include a team of unbiased specialists who will assist the spouses in coming to a conclusion on the terms of their divorce outside of the courtroom. The following experts may be involved in a collaborative divorce:
- Medical experts
- Financial experts
The above experts and specialists will provide additional insights into the logistics of each divorce matter. This process will allow both parties to come to a conclusion and compromise to benefit both parties.
