“I am going to take you to court!”
Not so fast. Though going to court can be the answer you need to reach a divorce settlement, it is not the only answer. Despite how advantageous litigating your case may seem, going to trial should be considered a last resort after you have resolved all other alternatives. And there are alternatives, some of which are more effective than others.
In this article Vikki Zeigler writes why the alternative dispute resolution she prefers most is mediation. Mediation takes place outside the courtroom. A neutral third party called a mediator listens to both sides and makes suggestions as to how the divorcing couple can find a solid middle ground. The mediator is familiar with issues relating to divorce and skilled at coming up with creative solutions which will lead a disputing couple to an agreement.
