Method of divorce is another financial aspect to consider

Getting a divorce ends in generally the same way for the partners involved. At the very basic level, the spouses are no longer spouses. But the intricacies that go into the divorce process — and the process itself — vary from case to case.

In this post we want to discuss the varying processes of divorce. Yes, in many cases couples do go the route of the family court. But there are also those couples who elect mediation or a collaborative divorce process to reshape the future of their families.

The most common reasons for choosing an alternative divorce route are the following:

  • The parties still get along, can make decisions together and don’t want a third party making those decisions for them.
  • The parties have children and wan to reduce the level of hostility caused by the divorce process.
  • The parties want to save time.
  • The parties want to save money.

The last aspect of choosing the method of mediation is a big deal to many, and not just to those who feel short on funds. Because mediation does often take less time than a more traditional, adversarial approach, the process overall tends to cost less money.

Those whose marital estate is high in value can also choose to forego a court process and to collaborate through the divorce. Many who have built up a valuable estate have done so through wise financial decisions and working toward financial goals with their spouse. Why should that mindset change when the couple gets divorced?

Are you wondering if mediation would work for you? Maybe you think there is too much at stake to try to simply talk through important matters such as property division, child custody and alimony. A lawyer you can trust will listen to your concerns and goals and advise you regarding the best divorce method for you and your family.
