Alternative Dispute Resolution Services - Settling Your Divorce Without LitigationIf you have been told by the court system, an attorney, or someone else helping you navigate divorce that you should use an alternative dispute resolution (ADR) method to help settle the terms of your separation or divorce, you may wonder what options are available to you. An alternative dispute resolution is a method of settling disputes like custody and other divorce issues without going through the traditional court system. One very effective alternative dispute resolution method is mediation. AMS Mediation specializes in helping couples and families settle the terms of their divorce without litigation.

Settling Your Divorce Without Litigation

An alternative dispute resolution method like mediation has many benefits. It is less expensive for the couple (which can reduce the stress of the situation) and can usually be handled more quickly than a court battle. ADR proceedings are more collaborative and encourage cooperation and compromise, which can lead to a more positive outcome for the entire family. Litigation promotes a win/lose outcome, increased conflict and stress. Going through an alternative dispute resolution process can help you lay a strong foundation for future communication. When you use mediation to settle issues like child custody and parenting time, you can more easily use it again to resolve issues that come up well after your divorce is final. This process can also model positive behavior to your children and demonstrate that you are able to settle disagreements on your own.
