Mediation may be the better option in these situations

Whether your spouse just sprung the idea of divorce on you or you've seen it coming for awhile now, most people are rarely prepared for the amount of work that needs to go into dissolving a marriage. From dividing marital property to determining a custody arrangement for the kids, divorce tends to lead to a lot of stress most couples are ill-prepared to handle.

Is it always wise to play nice during divorce?

In recent years, we have seen a dramatic shift in how matters are resolved in a divorce. Rather than taking every case to court, most people are able to address and solve various issues through measures like mediation or collaborative divorce.

My ex isn't paying child support: What can I do?

Negotiating a prenup? Be prepared

Making the decision to sign a prenup is not something you should take lightly. It is an important means of protection that you will need to consider carefully before signing any legal document, as it can dictate property division and asset allocation years down the road.

What is collaborative divorce and how does it work?

Most people are familiar with the process of dissolving a marriage through mediation. Considered more cost effective and less stressful than traditional divorce proceedings, mediation gives couples a chance to make all of the major decisions about their divorce instead of leaving it up to a judge, who may be a complete stranger to both spouses.
