Why mediation may be better than litigation when you divorce

Once a marriage has run its course, it's not all that uncommon for spouses to become less patient with one another than they once were.

Understand mediation before your first session

One of the options that you have for resolving the terms of your divorce is mediation. If you choose this option, you and your ex will have control over who gets what and other terms of the divorce.

Without a recent work history, they might wonder how they are going to make it.
