A Cost-Efficient And Solution-Based Method For Handling Your Divorce
The divorce process is not easy. When you are faced with ending your marriage, you will experience emotional stress and financial difficulties that you have never experienced before. Sometimes traditional divorce litigation can exacerbate and prolong conflicts with the use of adversarial methods. Today, many couples choose to use alternative means to legally resolve their differences. Divorce mediation and collaborative law methods allow the parties to go through the divorce process in a less stressful, more efficient and cost-effective manner. The divorce mediation process minimizes the financial and emotional impact of a divorce.
As part of our comprehensive law practice, we offer legal services to divorcing Pennsylvania spouses who are able to work cooperatively in creating legal agreements that best serve them and their children. Greensburg divorce mediation lawyer Doug Farrell, an experienced family attorney trained in mediation and collaborative law, can help you work through difficult issues to achieve a cost-effective and solution-based mediated agreement to your divorce.
Take Control Of The Process And Make Your Own Decisions
Mediation is a process that allows disputing parties to reach their own crafted agreement with the help of a neutral and unbiased mediator. Divorce mediation enables divorcing spouses to make their own decisions about all the issues in their divorce such as:
- The division of their assets
- The assignment of their debts
- The custody of their children
- How much and how long child or spousal support and/or alimony, if any, will be paid
Rather than allowing the court through a judge or hearing officer to decide the issues in your divorce, you can take control of the issues and details to avoid someone else determining the fate of your assets, financial responsibilities and custody of your children.
An Alternative Approach Is Now Available For Your Divorce
The collaborative law methodology is an emerging approach that provides an alternative for couples to traditional divorce litigation to end their marriage. The collaborative law approach can support the best interest of children and families in a less stressful, solution-oriented, interdisciplinary way, wherein couples can work with a team of professionals that might include mental health practitioners, child therapists, financial advisers and accountants who work together to assist couples in ending their marriage in an amicable, less stressful manner avoiding conflict, rather than resorting to litigation in court.
