Out of Court Settlement

Can my spouse and I settle our differences out of court and just get a judge to approve the settlement?

There are several different avenues for resolving marital dissolutions out of court-such as mediation and collaborative law-and these tools can greatly improve the financial and emotional factors of a divorce. However, your decision must be carefully thought through. After the divorce is over, it is often too late to change your mind. It is imperative that you consult with a qualified, Family Lawyer before agreeing to anything. Particularly if there are children involved, you want to make sure that their best interests are taken into account. Ultimately, most cases are resolved without a final trial.
