– Divorce cases often evolve into unnecessarily complex litigations. This happens because proper preparation and research are not done in the early stages of the case.
– For many people, mediation and collaborative law are not sufficient solutions to resolve their divorce. In these cases, litigation is selected because there is no alternative.
– The divorce litigation process provides structure, oversight, and clarity, as well as the benefit of having judges, court staff, and court attorneys. It helps move cases forward, but that doesn’t always mean things will be resolved quickly.
– You should choose the divorce process that works best for you and your circumstances. It should also protect you, because you’re making decisions that will impact you for the rest of your life. Being well informed is a good way to ensure this happens.
