The dissolution of a marriage is an emotionally painful experience. The last thing you want to do is add financial troubles and complicated legal wrangling to the mix. Between attorneys’ fees and the expenses that come with splitting one home into two, too many divorces result in an obliteration of assets and tie up future earnings in the process.
However, if you believe you can work with your spouse toward an amicable split, you may find in divorce mediation an effective alternative to a traditional litigious proceeding. It can reduce the financial and emotional impact of divorce on you, your ex, and your children.
