    The Divorce Process

    What are my options?

    In order to finalize a divorce, all issues concerning custody, parenting time, support and distribution of property must be resolved.  There are several ways to reach that goal.  Traditional litigation is a court-based process that requires formal discovery, court appearances and possibly a trial.  The Judge may decide the outcome and the process may be lengthy and costly. The other three options are known as Alternate Dispute Resolution (ADR).  Each type of ADR is a more individualized approach that takes place outside of court and results in a Settlement Agreement that is presented to the court at the time of the divorce. ADR is less adversarial, less time-consuming and generally less expensive than litigation.
