In recent years, it has become increasingly popular to choose mediation over the traditional divorce litigation process through the courts. Some people think ending a marriage is easy as pie, and there are plenty of lightly-credentialed “mediators” who take advantage of the relatively light regulation of this rapidly-growing field.
Hirsch Legal LLC, based in Shelton, Connecticut, offers mediation in circumstances where that approach is reasonable and likely to succeed. Using our knowledge of the law, we help mediation clients craft settlements that will pass muster with the judge(who must approve them). We make sure our mediation clients cover all necessary aspects of child custody and child support, asset/debt division, and property division.
A dirty little secret of mediation is that the process only works if both parties are reasonable and amicably disposed to each other. In matters where there exist disputes over each issue, for example as sometimes occurs with larger estates common in New Haven and Fairfield County, mediation may not be a viable option.
Before you decide whether to choose mediation or the litigated route through divorce court, it behooves you to spend some time studying the parameters of each approach. The best way to do that is to consult with an experienced divorce attorney. Attorney Carmina Hirsch is an ideal guide to discuss the pitfalls and opportunities of choosing mediation versus litigation relevant to Connecticut divorce law. She can explain how to weigh the various factors – financial, emotional and practical – that figure into this monumental decision.
