Divorce Attorney Alternative

Traditional court-based divorce can be enormously expensive, stressful and time consuming. It also tends to encourage animosity between divorcing people because lawyers tend to opt for an adversarial approach in order to maximize the benefit to their clients. AMS Mediation, however, offers a divorce attorney alternative. If you work with AMS Mediation to settle your divorce, you will be taking advantage of a new and important trend in divorce law, which is the use of mediation services rather than proceeding through the courts. Almost no one decides to get married with the idea that they will one day decide to get divorced. The fairy tale of love everlasting is a powerful symbol in our society, and most of us buy into it. It is, after all, an expression of hope that we enter into a relationship with the belief that it will last forever.
