When a spouse files for divorce in court there are various paths the divorce process can follow. The case can be litigated in court where neither party knows what the outcome will be and they leave their fate in the judge’s hands. The parties can choose mediation and work with a mediator who listens to both spouses and attempts to reach settlement in one or two sessions, or; the parties can choose to resolve their various issues using the Collaborative Law process. In the Collaborative Law process the fate of the family is in the hands of those who know the family the best – the parents/spouses.
