ALTERNATIVE DISPUTE RESOLUTION
An Alternative Option To The Courtroom
Many divorce cases end up in front of a judge, but there are alternative options you can seek in your case that can provide you with more control over the outcome and, potentially, at less cost. When a divorce case goes to court, the judge will make all final decisions on child custody, spousal support, property division and more. Using one of the accepted means of alternative dispute resolution, you and your soon to be ex-spouse can work with your respective attorneys to come to a decision on your own terms. Because of the extra level of control offered through mediation or facilitation, it’s incredibly important to work with a knowledgeable family law attorney in order to avoid any potential legal pitfalls.

Benefits of ADR
In addition to the increased flexibility ADR affords divorcing spouses, it can also provide significant advantages over a court battle including:
- Speed: While there is no guarantee that your divorce proceedings will suddenly hit a snag and drag on far beyond your initial expectations, ADR tends to take considerably less time than taking your case in front of a judge where you would need to rely on the court’s schedule.
- Less Expensive: Because the ADR process tends to take far less attorney time than a formal court case, the cost of hiring an attorney may be far lower than it would be otherwise as a result of decreased hours spent by your lawyer.
- Less Strict: Going to court requires all participants to follow strict rules set and enforced by the legal system. While ADR doesn’t mean that you can show up and treat the proceedings like a family picnic, there are likely fewer set rules in place for you to worry about.
- Confidentiality: Cases heard in court are entered into public record, and therefore, will not be confidential. ADR may better protect you from potential scrutiny and ensure your privacy.
- Maintain A Better Relationship With Your Spouse: Litigating your divorce case in court often leads to fractured or frayed relationships with your ex-spouse, if any relationship remains at all. ADR is a collaborative process that better allows you to preserve a relationship with your former partner, something that could be incredibly important if you have children in your lives.
