Will you pay manimony when you divorce?

Mediated vs. collaborative divorce: What’s the difference?

If your Ohio marriage appears on the verge of breaking up, you likely dread the prospect of a lengthy, expensive and acrimonious litigated divorce. However, you and your spouse have two additional options: a mediated divorce and a collaborative divorce. Both are out-of-court processes whereby you and your spouse negotiate together to resolve your own differences rather than leaving it up to a judge to determine how you will live your respective post-divorce lives.

What are the advantages of mediation?

If you have considered filing for legal separation or divorce, you may have thought about all of your options when it comes to dissolving your marriage. Two of the most popular methods of filing for divorce involve traditional courtroom divorce and mediation. Mediation has many advantages over courtroom litigation. Research shows that couples who choose to undergo mediation often end the marriage on better terms than those who choose to do so under traditional divorce. Since mediation is presented as non-confrontational and is more relaxed, you may not have the heated emotions that couples have when battling out in court.
