What Are The Alternatives To Litigation?

Divorce is thought of as an ugly process, often for good reason. Many couples spend thousands of dollars fighting each other over the big and small issues in their divorce, everything from custody of their children down to personal possessions. But divorce does not have to be that way. There are alternatives to litigation that leave the couple in control of their destiny and protect their ability to maintain an amicable relationship for the sake of their children.

What alternatives to litigation are available to you? Call 662-260-6646 or contact me online for a free initial consultation with a Chickasaw County mediation lawyer.

Experienced Help With Divorce Settlements

I’m attorney Gene Barton, a divorce attorney with more than 42 years of experience representing men and women in Chickasaw County. I draw on my legal experience as well as my own personal experience with divorce and family law to guide my clients to successful conclusions. Wherever appropriate, I encourage my clients to pursue alternatives to litigation.

Mediation In Mississippi Divorce Cases

Mediation is often thought of as a tactic for resolving expensive lawsuits, but it can be equally if not more valuable to couples seeking a peaceful resolution to their divorce and family law issues.

How does mediation work? The two parties pay a private individual who is trained to resolve these issues without needing to go to court. This often saves time, money and aggravation for the parties and leaves them in control of the outcome. Agreements reached through mediation are often more durable than agreements that are put in the hands of a judge due to an inability to agree.
