What are the Benefits of Mediation in CT?
Mediation is an alternative dispute resolution (ADR) program that avoids court. There’s no judge, hearing, or judgment. Instead, there’s one objective: to arrive at a settlement or agreement that suits both you and your ex-partner.
Mediation comes in various forms but its primary role is conflict resolution, helping both spouses engage in an honest and open conversation. Mediators ensure you and your ex-partner come to an agreement that conforms to Connecticut law.
During mediation, you can resolve many disputes including:
- Child custody
- Child support
- The conditions of your divorce
- Taxes that arise from your divorce
Alternatives to Mediation
What is Collaborative Law in CT?
Collaborative law sits somewhere between mediation and litigation. There are no mediators involved. Instead, spouses discuss and negotiate their divorce through family law attorneys. There might be other people involved, such as divorce coaches and financial experts.
What is a Litigated Divorce in CT?
Litigation means you go through the court system to resolve your divorce. Your case might not be heard and/or decided by a judge, but there’s always a trial at the end of the process. If you and your partner can’t resolve issues, a judge will decide alimony, child support, custody, and other factors that will have a significant impact on your life.
