Mediation vs Litigation
In some cases, spouses work out divorce terms on their own, while others require mediation. Divorce mediation means both spouses meet with and make the decisions with a mediator present. If terms cannot be agreed upon in mediation, then litigation in court may be required. In this case, the spouses must abide by the decisions of the court.
OTHER FACTORS TO BE RESOLVED IN A DIVORCE
Child Custody and Visitation – Child custody refers to both the practical and legal rights over children, including where they will live and who makes the decisions regarding matters of educations, health and safety.
Child Support – Following a divorce, it will be determined how much child support will be paid and by which parent. The law requires that both of the parents share responsibility of raising the child up to at least the age of 19.
Maintenance and Spousal Support – This refers to the support one spouse pays the other in a divorce. This is determined by the needs of the spouse to pay as ordered by the Court.
Property Settlement – This includes dividing all property, money, assets and debts that was accumulated during the course of the marriage.
