Divorce is already an emotional process. Sometimes it can be messy. The circumstances that lead up to your divorce could be extremely emotional. The last thing you want is to have your dirty laundry aired out in front of a court. The good news is that divorce court is not the only option you have. For those that want an amicable and discreet divorce process, divorce mediation could be right for you. Our friends over at Solutions & Resolutions help resolve a range of cases through mediation, including dissolutions of marriages. Which is why we have invited them to explain how this process could benefit you here today.
If privacy is what you are after, family court is not the place to find it. In court, they will go over all details regarding financial decisions, childcare decisions, and other personal topics. In court, anyone from the public can come and watch and listen to the proceedings. At the very least, those waiting for their turn before the judge will hear your case. On top of that, court records are available to the public. This means that anyone wanting to find information regarding your divorce can look it up. Especially if you are a public figure, you may wish for a more discreet divorce than family court is going to give you.
If going through the most personal details of your life in front of a room full of strangers does not sound like the move for you, mediation is a great option. With mediation, strangers are kept to a minimum. You and your partner are welcomed into a private space in order to successfully divvy up your life in a calm setting. This neutral, private environment is one that will encourage open communication. The goal of mediation is to come to an agreement that is the best one for all parties involved.
At the end of the day, the choice is yours. Different situations require different solutions. When you need an attorney to fight for your side alone, contact Hampton & Pigott. And when you need someone to guide you and your partner to the most agreeable and peaceful option for both sides, reach out to Solutions & Resolutions.
