A divorce is a challenging situation even in the best of circumstances. When you are going through one, you have to be sure that you understand the points that are going to come into the picture. You can't always predict your ex's moves, but you might be able to use your knowledge about him or her to make a guess about what is going to happen.
We understand that you probably want to get your life back to normal as soon as possible. One way that you can work on this is to work with your ex through mediation to get the matters of the divorce hashed out. This isn't always easy, but it can help you get the process over with faster than going through a trial.
Some cases aren't suitable for mediation. In these cases, we are ready to get your case prepared for trial. A trial is going to be a longer process than mediation. You won't have as much say about what happens, but you won't have to try to negotiate with your ex. You will also find that this might be more expensive than mediation.
One thing that you shouldn't ever do in a divorce is make a decision that you aren't comfortable with just so that you can get the process over with faster. A divorce order is something that is very difficult to have changed later, so don't think that this is going to be possible. Instead, work on getting the settlement you need right now so that you can walk away without having to worry about things in the future.
