The article explains considerations individuals should evaluate prior to filing for a divorce, as well as various court procedures and mediation, a process that allows parties to settle their divorce without the expense and emotional toll of a trial.
According to the article, “A mediator is a person who acts as a go-between as the parties in the divorce negotiate a settlement. Mediation allows you to settle the divorce situation based on your own perception of what is fair, rather than an outside party making a decree that is outside of your control.”
Even in situations where parties agree or where the issues seem uncomplicated, the decisions made in a divorce are legally binding and final. Anderson Hunter strongly recommends that those considering or currently pursuing a divorce work closely with their divorce lawyer to minimize complications and ensure their rights are protected and the outcome is fair.
As noted in the article,“Many people assume that it’s fine to file for divorce without the assistance of a divorce lawyer. However, there are many disadvantages to doing so.”
They explain that the processes of property distribution, child custody, child support, and spousal support are all significant issues that can be difficult to negotiate without the expertise of a divorce attorney for guidance. How these issues are settled may ultimately be unfair (or worse, done improperly) without the help of a professional.
“A legal expert will be able to provide you with the knowledge to keep the process moving smoothly, rectify any disagreements, and help you to handle a possible court proceeding,” Anderson Hunter advises.
“These matters can be very difficult to navigate on your own. Make sure that your interests are well represented and that you begin with a proper understanding of how the process will unfold.”
