2 - Deciding How to Resolve Matters After Separation

2 - Options for Resolving Matters After Separation

There was a time when getting divorced meant going to court.  Going to court meant fighting it out.  However, that fight did not work out well for many families.  It almost never worked out well for the children.  It certainly did not make any sense with "no fault divorces" that recognized that sometimes people just grew apart and divorce was not always the result of someone acting badly.

Now there are options for resolving issues after divorce.  While a full out fight is sometimes necessary, it usually is not.  There are alternatives, even when the separating spouses strongly disagree with each other.  The options can keep tensions, emotions and legal fees down.  They are better designed to resolving matters in a child friendly manner.

Negotiation, mediation, mediation-arbitration, arbitration and collaborative practice are all alternatives to court that usually have outcomes that makes separated spouses happier than a court fight.  What are these choices?  Which one is right for you?  Listen and find out.  This podcast provides critical information for separating spouses that can impact the rest of their lives.  It should be mandatory listening for everyone going through a separation or divorce.
