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.
