No matter what your situation is, no couple, no matter what the differences are, wants to fight in court. Almost everyone loses in a litigated divorce. The only winners are litigators, who bill you hourly while you and your spouse stand your ground. A settlement-minded attorney offers more collaborative options for couples capable of collaborating outside of court. Are you one of them? If so, read on.
At the Law Offices of Jennifer Owens, we offer both litigation and mediation for whatever your case demands. Learn why our settlement-minded approach is so beneficial for divorcing couples, and call our offices if you’re in need of an Orange County divorce attorney.
What is Settlement-Minded Family Law?
Settlement-minded family law is centered around choice. Rather than marching through the pain and expenses of traditional litigation, settlement-minded family law offers collaborative routes to finalization that put your family above all else.
The Law Offices of Jennifer Owens harbors litigation expertise for high-conflict cases that mediation can’t cater to. In short – whether you desire a negotiated settlement through mediation or a strong litigator to close this chapter, a settlement-minded family law approach revels in the power of choice. It’s also driven by the many benefits of divorce mediation versus litigation.
Benefits of a Settlement-Minded Divorce Attorney
Rather than strictly litigating or mediating your case, a settlement-minded Orange County divorce attorney offers multiple avenues to finalization. At the Law Offices of Jennifer Owens, divorce mediation is our bread and butter. Here are some of the ways mediation clients and their families benefit from settling outside of the courtroom:
Time & Cost Savings
Forget constant court hearings and costly attorneys. Since mediation is settled out of court and employs one mediator rather than two attorneys, you’ll save countless hours and dollars with a trusted divorce attorney who has mediation expertise.
Less Stress & Pain
Thanks to the shorter timetable, absence of court hearings, and decision-making control offered by mediation, you and the entire family will experience far less stress and emotional pain. Less time in court is always preferable, and a quicker settlement protects your children from the pain of an incessant divorce.
Alternative divorce solutions such as mediation can be tailored according to you and your spouse’s wishes rather than a judge having the final say. From alimony and custody agreements to parenting plans, you and your spouse can determine the most mutually beneficial solution amongst yourselves – and outside of a courtroom.
