It’s never too late to change the direction that your divorce proceedings are taking. If you feel that tension is escalating and you’re not progressing, it might be a good time to take a different approach. Collaborative law or Mediation may be approaches that could work better for you.
Collaborative law involves your lawyers working together and with each of you by way of strong communication. Collaborative law favours meetings over correspondence to keep matters constructive.
Mediation also promotes open communication and involves a third person helping you to discuss options and concerns with each other to reach a solutions together. Sometimes the introduction of a third neutral person to the dynamic can really help matters progress positively.
Other options involve a barrister providing an early neutral evaluation or an arbitrator making a definitive decision on matters where you can’t find agreement. These options can ultimately save you time, angst and money. There are many flexible options and it is important to explore them to make sure you’re following the best route for you – it’s never too late to make a new start.
