Approaches to Resolving Your Divorce

Traditional litigation is a mistake that must be corrected… For some disputes trials will be the only means, but for many claims trials by adversarial contest must in time go the way of the ancient trial by battle and blood. Our system is too costly, too painful, too destructive, too inefficient for really civilized people.”

Chief Justice Warren E. Burger, (Ret.) U.S. Supreme Court.

Collaboration and mediation are innovative approaches to divorce that correct the grueling process of litigation that legal scholars, legal professionals, and most importantly, those pursuing divorce, recognize as an inefficient and costly system.

Collaboration and mediation allow all parties to formulate ideas and use those to craft an agreement. The collaborative divorce attorneys or mediators work to ensure that all parties focus on the big picture and solutions are beneficial to everyone. These processes mitigate the pain that a lengthy litigation process can cause.

If your situation warrants negotiation or litigation, The Law Office of Tania K. Harvey will support you through these processes.

Mediation is another innovative approach to divorce and is often chosen by parties who want to, or need to, preserve an amicable personal or working relationship. If you have children together or are business partners, mediation can help result in a win-win for both parties ensuring that you can move forward and maintain a civil relationship, so you can work together personally or professionally.

Negotiation is one way to obtain a divorce settlement agreement

More than 90% of divorce cases settle without going to trial and one of the main ways that happens is negotiation. This is primarily because both parties tend to recognize the benefits of avoiding a strenuous litigation process and recognize the benefits of being the decision makers in the process. A judge, who does not know you, your partner, or the complexities of your family law matters, is not needed to render a decision that will impact you the rest of your life. Negotiating a divorce settlement agreement can be a smoother and shorter process than litigation and can provide you with more desirable results.

You will need an experienced divorce lawyer to litigate your case
