Does mediation, arbitration, or litigation work best for complex divorce cases?

Mediation can resolve complex divorce cases provided the parties are able to agree on valuation issues and a fair allocation of assets. If that is not possible then litigation would be to determine the disputed values and what is an equitable allocation of the marital assets and debts. Arbitration without a prior agreement is not used in McLean County and the surrounding counties, however if for example, a prenuptial agreement between the parties required arbitration, then arbitration could be used to resolve those complex divorce issues.

Matthew R. Majernik is a highly skilled mediator and family lawyer in Bloomington, Illinois with a focus on family law and estate planning. His experience also includes the areas of dissolution of marriage, parentage actions, custody, child support, and order of protection.
