What Are The Benefits Of Alternative Dispute Resolution In Divorce?
Divorce does not have to be a hostile and adversarial process. Today, more than ever, couples are turning to options in alternative dispute resolution (ADR) when they seek to end their marriage. ADR has many benefits over that of traditional litigation. Not only does it promote joint decision-making in a peaceful manner, but it also allows individuals to remain in much more control over the outcome of their matter. Additionally, clients who use ADR to resolve issues in divorce and family law can save on the increased time and money associated with an adversarial approach.
Your first step in exploring ADR options should be to contact a qualified family law attorney who has significant experience in these methods. At the Law Office of Ronald L. Hendrix, P.C., in Naperville, Illinois, we place a special emphasis on two major forms of ADR:
- Collaborative law divorce : Both parties retain separate legal counsel specifically trained in collaborative law and pledge to work together to resolve divorce issues, without going to court.
- Mediation : Both spouses work with a third-party neutral, called a mediator, to come to a mutual decision on the many issues involved in their divorce.
Backed By Meaningful ADR Experience
Attorney Hendrix is well-known for his success in guiding clients through collaborative divorce as well as mediation. With more than 25 years of legal experience, he has focused a significant portion of his practice to obtaining these peaceful resolutions when possible. He is a court-appointed mediator and uses this experience to advise and guide his clients as he represents them during the mediation process. He is also an active member of numerous ADR associations, including the Alternative Dispute Resolution Section of the American Bar Association, the Collaborative Law Institute of Illinois and the International Academy of Collaborative Professionals.
