Alternative Dispute Resolution
While we attempt to minimize conflict whenever possible, we also understand that litigation is often necessary. Our lawyers will protect your rights in cases where an amicable solution is not possible.
Alternative dispute resolution (ADR) refers to the different ways that parties in a divorce can settle their differences outside of a courtroom. By using ADR, couples are usually able to resolve their divorce in a more peaceful, accommodating manner. This ultimately saves them time and money.
There are three common methods of ADR:
- Mediation: In mediation, couples work with their attorneys and a trained mediator to reach an agreement on contested issues in the divorce. These issues include alimony, property division, child custody and visitation, parenting plans and child support.
- Arbitration: In arbitration, the parties agree to present their cases to an arbitrator, instead of a judge. The arbitrator will make final decisions regarding the issues in a divorce. While this method is more like court than mediation, it is generally still cheaper and quicker than going to court.
- Collaborative Divorce: The relatively new method of collaborative law is a process that requires compromise. Both parties commit from the beginning of the case to resolve their disputes by negotiation instead of going to court. If either of the parties to the divorce decides that the collaborative process is not working, both parties must find new attorneys to represent them in court.
Whether your case ultimately ends up in mediation, arbitration, collaborative divorce or trial, you need a lawyer by your side who will provide the experienced representation and personal service that you deserve.
