It is normal to be upset during a divorce. With emotions running high and your spouse doing things that upset you, the natural inclination is to dig in your heels and fight passionately for your position. But many couples do not realize that going through litigation means leaving major decisions about your life up to the court. No matter how well your attorney argues on your behalf, ultimately the decision falls to the judge. The judge will make compromises, decisions that almost never result in a satisfying outcome for either party.
Litigation is generally not the best remedy to resolve your family matters. It is better, and often less expensive, to work through your issues together to reach agreements you can both be happy with. Mediation is designed to help you with the process. Non-binding and guided by a professional who can help you see solutions you might not have thought of. Mediation is less expensive, less painful and can be more effective than litigation. Families who come to an agreement are far more likely to be satisfied and follow that agreement than are parties who become polarized in litigation and have the Court force an Order upon them.
