Understanding Your Divorce OptionsUncategorized
If you are facing a divorce, we understand that you are probably confused and hearing many opinions about what others would do if they were you. Sometimes, you just need clarification on what your options are from an outside source. Hopefully, the following information we have for you will do just that.
In an ideal divorce setting, it would be great if you and your spouse could peacefully join sides to work out the terms of the divorce with a mediator. This does not mean that the mediator will make the decisions for you. Rather, he or she will act as a facilitator for both sides and can be a neutral third party. This option has many benefits, including being less expensive than going to a court. Also, in most mediation cases, all the issues over the settlement get worked out.
Hire an Attorney
In situations where spouses do not agree on the settlement terms, it can be helpful to get an attorney. An attorney can walk you through your options, especially where children are concerned. You can rest assured knowing that the attorney has your best interest in mind. He or she will also know the ins and outs of the laws and know how to protect your well-being. The benefit of this option is that you have full representation.
