Litigation, Mediation, Consulting, and Limited Scope: What is the best option for you?
It is said that going through a divorce is akin to mourning the death of a friend or family member. No one expects to get divorced when entering into marriage, so you may feel scared, stressed and overwhelmed by the unknown. This is where I come in. I will walk you through how the law will impact you and your case, and explain your options to you in simple and straightforward terms.
For example, in general, mediation is less expensive and far more efficient than litigation or going to court. If two parties are motivated and able to communicate, a divorce can be settled in a matter of weeks at a reasonable cost. Litigation is typically more time-consuming (and costly), but is sometimes unavoidable. In other cases, I can coach and consult you to handle your divorce on your own, or I can just help you with specific issues (“limited scope”).
After we talk, I will give you the option of choosing which path you prefer to take, along with the pros and cons of each option. My goal in helping you is to take on as much or as little of the work for you as you choose.
