Why Alternative Dispute Resolution Is the Best Option for Divorce

If you are planning to get divorced, arming yourself with adequate information that will work to your favor seems like the most logical thing to do. No one can blame you. After all, most divorces are widely considered to be excruciating, expensive and nasty legal processes, to say the least. Contrary to what most people think, your divorce doesn't necessarily have to be a horrid separation.

When you can reach an amicable dispute resolution with your ex-spouse, a divorce proceeding can be simply compared to the proverbial "walk in the park." To achieve such an elusive feat to most ex-spouses, you need to incorporate a collaborative divorce process and an unbiased mediation expert. In most cases, separating spouses can resolve complex divorce issues if:

  • You are both able to discuss sensitive marital matters without succumbing to emotional stress
  • You understand the benefits of winding a hotly contested divorce through an amicable settlement in the form of spousal support
  • You both reach a cordial agreement regarding child custody
  • There is no history of domestic abuse
  • Neither spouse owns complex assets that need comprehensive division
  • Both spouses opt to save from a lengthy and expensive divorce trial

If you meet such requirements, then getting an alternative dispute resolution might just be your only ticket out of marriage. Such guidelines have been proven to yield impressive results compared to the traditional courtroom proceedings. When couples pursue a collaborative divorce process, it doesn't necessarily mean they like each other. It only means they are willing to put aside their differences for the best interests of all affected parties, courtesy of an elaborate alternative dispute resolution.
