Hiring a mediator is a good option when both parties are frustrated and hurt but are still willing to work together to reach a settlement and stay out of court. A mediator will act as a neutral third party and listen to both sides of the story.
They facilitate communication between the two spouses, so they can reach an agreement that can be used by a judge to craft the final divorce judgement. With the enhanced model a financial advisor and Parenting mediator are included to work as a team for the best outcome.
Also known as collaborative law or collaborative practice, collaborative divorce is a good option when both parties are having a hard time communicating but feel that they may be able to come to an agreement out of court with some help. It is like mediation or arbitration but instead of using a neutral third party each person retains their own lawyer who specializes in collaborative law.
Before starting the process both parties sign a document stating that they will work together to come to an agreement. If this fails both attorneys withdraw from the case and the process starts at square one. This is often an incentive for spouses to work together to make collaborative practice work.
