Follow Us

Yes, now you and your spouse have the chance to work out your divorce without stepping into the stressful environment of a court room.

Did you know that at least a couple of hundred thousand divorce petitions are filed every year in the state of California?

With the economy being the way it is today, judges and family attorneys are challenged to find ways to offer alternative dispute resolutions in order to free up much needed time on crowded court room dockets.

Have you and your spouse decided on divorce, but do not want to go through the stressful process in a courtroom?

Alternative dispute resolution (ADR) refers to several different ways for you and your spouse to resolve disputes with a trial – without stepping into the courtroom.  Typical processes include mediation, arbitration, evaluation and collaborative law.  These processes are generally less stressful than traditional court proceedings.

You ask, “Is ADR the way for us?”  Alternative dispute resolution is often an effective means of reaching an agreement in family law cases.

First, ADR most probably will save you money.  Second, it usually arrives at a quicker settlement.  You can end up resolving your own disputes with a better outcome and greater satisfaction for all concerned.  You can walk away from your spouse in a friendly manner.

Good planning is essential if you choose ADR.  Make sure your rights are protected.  If you have questions regarding divorce and alternative dispute resolution, contact an experienced Riverside Divorce attorney.  Call the law offices of Holstrom, Sissung, Marks & Anderson for the help you need and the protection you deserve.
