There are many challenges associated with the divorce process. For example, you may be concerned about the cost and time associated with litigation.
Fortunately, you have other options. Through an alternative dispute resolution, such as mediation, you may be able to work through all your differences without appearing in court.
It's hard to fully understand the reasons to consider mediation until you actually learn more about the benefits. Some of the reasons why this is growing in popularity include:
-- No time spent in court, which makes the process much less stressful
-- Less money out of your own pocket
-- The ability to have more control over the situation
-- Helps keep hostility to a minimum
-- You still have the opportunity to work side by side with a family law attorney
