Cut to the Chase: Divorce Mediation

Not every divorce has to be a long, brutal fight in court. If you and your spouse are not on good terms, it may be tempting to take this route in order to make your ex suffer. Most people, however, are less concerned with revenge, and more concerned with keeping their legal fees low and moving on with their lives. If you're in this boat, you probably view the divorce process as a figurative bump in the road that is best moved on from as quickly as possible.

Arbitration: Another Alternative to Court

Court is not the only option for divorcing couples. A common alternative to court is mediation, in which a neutral third party helps the couple reach their own agreement regarding division of property, child and spousal support, and custody. Another option is mediation's close cousin, arbitration. An arbitrator is sometimes described as a more informal trial conducted by a private judge. The parties actively try to persuade the arbitrator on their respective points, and in turn, the arbitrator offers a judgment.
