Many people think that divorce, by its very nature, necessitates a dispute between former spouses. While stress and discomfort are likely inevitable, a dispute does not have to be. Litigation is ultimately unnecessary, and instead of going to court, you may be able to opt for an alternative dispute resolution. ADR, or mediation, is one of the best options for navigating a divorce amicably and effectively.
In recent years, mediation has become a big part of the family court process in Georgia and many other U.S. states. In fact, in some jurisdictions, divorcing couples are required to make an attempt at mediation before they are allowed to schedule a traditional hearing in family court.
In recent years, family law professionals have touted mediation as the solution to the increasingly backlogged family court systems in Ohio and around the country. Many couples have decided to use mediation as a more cost-effective, less combative way to conclude their marriage.
What if we told you that there was a way to resolve your divorce or other family law issues that would save you time and money, while also preserving your relationship with your ex-spouse? You might not believe that such a thing exists. But it does, and it is called mediation.
