Which Resolution is Right For You?
Understanding the options that are available to you
How you proceed with your divorce has a significant impact on you and your family. There are options available to you, including dispute resolution or mediation, uncontested divorce, or a contested divorce. Each has the potential to provide you with a positive resolution to your case, and which resolution is right for you depends on your unique needs as an individual and a family.
Dispute resolution, or mediation, is an amicable way to resolve the various facets of a divorce. Jennifer Nielsen is certified in alternative dispute resolution (ADR) and can assist you through the process of coming to an agreement with your spouse on each aspect of the separation. Dispute resolution is highly desirable for many reasons, including overall reduced costs and less stress on all parties involved.
In some cases, one spouse may refuse to begin the divorce or dissolution process. However, if the other spouse wants a divorce, in Ohio, the divorce will happen. In these cases, while the matter must be initially filed as a divorce, often, the other spouse will come to the understanding that the divorce is inevitable, and will then work towards an amicable resolution.
Uncontested divorces are used to begin the process of the divorce; to ensure that the other spouse does not hide or spend the parties’ assets; and to ensure that, where appropriate, temporary orders of child and spousal support are put into place while the divorce is in process.
If both parties are willing to negotiate an amicable uncontested divorce, a private judge can conduct the final hearing in our offices. This reduces time, stress, and costs for all involved.
A contested divorce tends to be a significantly more expensive and lengthier process than dispute resolution, however, for some families it is the only option. If you and your spouse are unable to reach an agreement on important matters like property division, spousal support, child support, and/or child custody, litigation may be the best way to achieve a resolution that is in your favor and protects the best interests of you and your loved ones.
