Choosing Divorce Court over Mediation or Collaborative Divorce

It is often the case that couples who chose to divorce can proceed more quickly by using mediation or collaborative law. On the other hand, there are some instances when going through a traditional divorce court is the better choice. Our Nashville divorce attorney can advise you as to which path is best for you.

In our more than 30 years of experience, Martin Sir & Associates has become well-known for our deep understanding of the law regarding divorce and family law. Martin Sir has been awarded a Superb rating and has won the Clients’ Choice Award for Avvo in Divorce for 2012 and 2014 thanks to his favorable outcomes and strong client rapport. Look to our firm when you help resolving a divorce matter.

When should I pursue divorce court?

Using collaborative law or going to mediation can usually move your divorce along faster and do so in a more private setting. Some situations, however, warrant going to court.

Divorce court can be the better option when:

  • Your spouse has combative, aggressive counsel
  • Your spouse has a history of intimidating and abusing you
  • Your spouse is uncommunicative
  • Your spouse has gone missing
  • Your spouse lacks good faith

In these instances, attempting to work out your separation with your spouse amicably by simply working together or via mediation may simply be a waste of time and can possibly endanger you if your spouse has a history of violence.

A skilled Nashville divorce lawyer can advise you at each step of your divorce, especially if divorce court would be the better option depending on your circumstances. Speak with our firm to learn about your rights and options.
