Avoid a Divorce Trial
When appropriate, mediation and collaborative law offer cost-effective and emotionally less divisive alternatives to a trial and can foster good relations between former spouses. In these procedures, you and your ex-spouse sit down together in a carefully controlled environment and come to your own agreement about asset division, child custody, visitation, and support, and other issues. To learn more about alternative dispute resolution, you can visit our mediation and collaboration practice pages.
If you are considering filing for divorce, or your spouse has already filed for divorce, contact an experienced family law attorney. To find out more about family law issues in general, please see our Family Law Information Center or our Frequently Asked Questions About Family Law.
