What are my options for alternative dispute resolution?

When some couples consider getting divorced, they may want to see whether they can do so in a relatively peaceful manner. Through means of alternative dispute resolution, this is a possibility.

There are a few different options that anyone considering alternative dispute resolution may want to consider. Arguably the most popular form of alternative dispute resolution is mediation. Through mediation, couples have the opportunity to sit down with each other, their attorneys, and a neutral third party to discuss any contested matters. Each party will have the opportunity to share their wishes and opinions and come to a decision that works for everyone as best as possible.

Other forms of alternative dispute resolution include neutral evaluation, collaborative law, and arbitration. Arbitration is a more flexible option for people than actually going to court. It is, however, a similar process. If the couple chooses collaborative law, they will work together with their respective attorneys to decide on all of the matters at hand.

Any form of alternative dispute resolution requires all participants to be willing to work together to reach a common goal. This means they must be willing to communicate rationally in order to get anything done. Sometimes, couples are just better off in court. Of course, it all depends on your situation.
