Types of Alternative Dispute Resolution for Divorcing Families

When you decide to divorce, it’s important to note that you aren’t automatically setting yourself up for a long, drawn out process. Divorcing families can employ alternative dispute resolution techniques to limit the damage that divorce may cause. By choosing alternative dispute resolutions, couples can minimize the impact that divorce has on their children and their future.

Mediation
Divorce mediation is about you and your spouse. The process is voluntary, and continues for as long as both parties and the mediator involved feel is necessary. The mediation process is private, meaning that you don’t have to air your dirty laundry in public. During the process, you get to work through parenting plans, child support and alimony, how you’ll distribute assets and liabilities, how you’ll handle retirement accounts, and more. You can choose to have your attorneys present or not, as the goal of mediation is to facilitate the process, not to have either party come out ahead.

Today it is more common to see joint parenting time consist of one week on, and one week off or “two-two-five-five” time,…See More

Including a Financial Professional in Your Mediation

Very often, couples who are divorcing amicably, or who have straightforward financial situations, will forgo meeting with a financial professional while they go through mediation. Though this may seem logical on its face, “going it alone” may result in unnecessary hardship and inaccurate calculations.  It is easy to simply look at a tax table today and say “I am going…See More
