Beware The Stranger In Black Robes

There are lots of reasons to keep your case out of court.  It is less stressful, more likely to result in a longer lasting agreement, and potentially will save a lot of money if you and your soon to be ex can mediate instead of litigate your case.  Nowadays you may even be able to mediate online. On the other hand, if you have an impossible or unengaged spouse, court litigation may be your only option.  Before deciding to run into court, evaluate whether that is really your only option. 


In this excellent blog posting Gabrielle Hartley offers 5 reasons to avoid having judges - strangers in black robes - deciding your life:


  • Going to court puts your future in the hands of a stranger.  

  • Limits to What the Judge Hears.

  • Don’t Details Matter?……Well, yes and no.  

  • Judges are Just People.

  • Court wastes time and money.
