Divorce is a financial, but primarily emotional, event. People often want to attack each other. They are angry and want the biggest litigation attorney to get back at their spouse. When they think of divorce, they think of going to an attorney and filing for divorce, while their spouse goes to another attorney and answers the pleading.
A traditional divorce can be very lengthy. It involves a lot of people, including judges, bailiffs, process servers, and court reporters. It can be very costly and, ultimately, the couple loses control on the decisions that are made. You’re asking a judge who has seen you for a few hours here and there during hearings to make a decision for the rest of the life of your family, not just the divorcing couple.
