Divorce Options

Divorce is undeniably stressful and has the reputation for bringing out the worst in people. Conflict and emotions are high and many difficult decisions must be made under duress in order to separate the two intertwined lives. You must decide how to divide your property, assets (and debts), settle on a parenting plan for how the kids will spend their time and come to an agreement on any child and/or spousal support. Many assume that hiring a lawyer and letting the court help you settle your divorce is the best (or only) way to navigate a divorce. Another option that has become more popular over the last decade is to use divorce mediation instead of the courts to settle a divorce. Mediation focuses on finding areas of compromise and common ground rather than exacerbating conflict.
