A Better Way
Discussion of divorce proceedings may bring to mind a courtroom scene with two divorcing spouses battling over every piece of property they own. It’s common for people to treat the court-ordered mediation process as a preliminary round to the big event in court, where the real work gets done.
However, there is a better way.
By working through the asset and debt division in mediation, you will find the process to me more peaceful and efficient and much less expensive than litigation. Further, most people end up with better results in mediation.
Division of assets is part of the overall divorce process and needs to be negotiated in that context: as part of the whole proceeding. By working together with our clients before negotiations begin, we determine which things are worth fighting for and which things can be left behind. This gives us the best chance to get what our clients really want out of the process.
Our attorneys will work with you and determine the best approach in your case.
