While it is always best to minimize conflict and keep couples out of court sometimes the issues can only be resolved through the family courts. Divorce Litigation is when couples cannot agree on a fair settlement and going to family court is the only option. The scale of the disagreements is a determining factor in whether or not going you’ll likely end up in court.
Mediation is the most frequent method of negotiating a divorce settlement. Mediation is when you and your spouse along with your respective lawyers and sometimes a neutral third party is called to take part in the negotiations. Mediation is much less expensive than going to court.
Litigation is the most expensive option and should always be the last resort especially if you and your ex-spouse expect to co-parent. It can be complicated, from dividing assets, spousal and child support to creating a parent plan.
