Private Path

What does a peaceful process look like? In Pennsylvania, we have a mediation process for couples. This option eliminates the expense and time required for one spouse to formally blame the other spouse in court.  Couples can choose to keep their families’ private information and “dirty laundry” out of court and out of the public record. Ultimately, families that choose this peaceful path benefit with their finances, time, and privacy.

Simple Path

Typically the fees are far less expensive if you choose the mediation route. Your timeline will be much shorter if you choose not to fight in court, and this option means your matter can be handled privately and confidentially. Eliminating the public accusations and he-said-she-said can bridge the divide and help create a path to a simple, cost-effective process.

You Have a Choice

Consider mediation first. If you would like to move forward amicably, think about and discuss with your spouse whether drafting an agreement mutually would be a good fit for you and your family. A qualified mediator can help you focus on navigating the issues and moving forward peacefully, avoiding the shame that may surface publicly during a trial. If a healthy process sounds appealing to you, give mediation a try!
