Settling Divorce and Family Law Matters through Negotiation
Many people, with the help of their attorneys, negotiate a settlement of disputed issues. They do so without going through mediation, arbitration, collaborative law, or other alternative dispute processes. Skilled attorneys can help clients make informed decisions about a private, contractual settlement of issues.
Negotiated settlements can be achieved at any time. They can be achieved before anyone files a court case. They can be achieved while a matter is pending in court. They can be achieved in the middle of trial, or after the conclusion of a trial, or while an appeal is pending. The earlier in the process a settlement occurs, the less money the parties will spend on costly litigation.
