Finding Less Contentious Divorce Solutions In Everett And Snohomish County
You might be one of the lucky individuals who, while going through a divorce, is still able to work cooperatively with your spouse. Even if you do not agree on everything, you can still pursue less contentious divorce solutions. At Akiona Law, PLLC, we offer representation tailored to meet our clients’ individual needs, including those that allow for use of mediation or collaborative law as a means for dispute resolution.
The Benefits Of Settling Things Out Of Court
A judge in court can help when negotiation of agreements has proven fruitless, but much is lost when a judge hands down decisions regarding your personal and family life. Even when a case is skillfully presented and argued, a judge only has a limited understanding of what your family needs. As a result, the decisions made are often less personalized and fail to fully reflect the divorcing couple’s goals.
Furthermore, courtroom fees can become very expensive, and the inability to make headway in finding an agreement only draws out the expense further. If you have the opportunity to work out your problems cooperatively outside of court, you will likely save money, save time and save yourself from ineffective divorce resolutions related to child custody, child support, spousal support, property division and any other issue you face.
Viable Options For Those Who Are Not In A Married Relationship
Alternative dispute resolution can be particularly effective in cases where the law is unclear or would act unfavorably for you and your spouse or significant other such as in cases with unmarried parents who have a child in common.
Divorce issues are complex. You need to know that your rights will be protected and that efforts will be exhausted while still saving you time and money. This is our goal as your team of family law attorneys.
