What are my options for alternative dispute resolution?

Contact Us Today!

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.

What Our Clients Are Saying

I hired Susan to represent me in a divorce matter where I was fighting for custody and to limit my wife's equitable share of our assets. I won custody of our son, kept the marital residence, kept my professional practice, kept my building and paid less than half to my wife. This was after a long-term marriage. She could persuade the court that equitable is not equal and sometimes the man does deserve to win!

I first must say that I had been represented by two prior attorneys both of whom had simply taken my money and left me nothing to show for it in my custody case. They kept telling me what they were doing for me but I found out they were lying. Susan on the other hand had gotten me temporary custody and support for my children and myself within two months of hiring her. I cannot say enough about her.

‐ Craig

After talking to a few other attorneys, I hired Susan to represent me in my divorce and custody dispute. I was reluctant to go with her because she was the cheapest out of all the other attorneys I met with, but I'm so glad I did. I am 100% positive no one else would have done such a great job with my case as Susan and her staff. Her work is quality, her staff is reliable and her character is honorable. There...

‐ Linda

I had a very difficult case where I had already burned through two attorneys who were unable to get me custody of my children and complete my divorce. Susan was able to rapidly work out an agreement and not let it just malinger on like my previous experiences. She was also considerate of my financial situation unlike all of the other lawyers I had spoken to. I highly recommend her if you want complete and caring service with an in-depth knowledge of...
