Mediation and collaboration: Oklahoma divorce alternatives
Take, for example, mediation. Unlike litigation, mediation involves a neutral third party who facilitates the negotiations between the parties, so that each partner can come to an agreeable solution regarding their divorce legal issues. Mediators usually have special training. While mediators are not the ultimate decision makers, they can act as a good sounding board. They can also make recommendations while couples work out their issues to reach a final divorce agreement.
In collaborative law, each party retains legal counsel who work together to reach a final divorce agreement, rather than working in an adversarial fashion as they would in traditional litigation. Other experts may be involved in the collaborative law process as well.
