You can divorce peacefully.
When facing the prospect of divorce, people often are aware of just one option: litigation. They hire attorneys and prepare for an adversarial process. Friends and family tell them "war stories" of divorce that they have heard, and encourage them to "lawyer up". This creates an adversarial situation that makes the process difficult—and expensive.
Fortunately, there are much better alternatives!
You can go through your divorce more peacefully and effectively by using mediation or collaborative law. Both options allow you and your spouse to stay out of court, stay in control of the process, and keep your expenses as low as possible.
Collaborative law attorney Nanci Smith and Mediator Erik Wheeler explain how collaborative law and mediation work, give you tips on how to make the divorce process as smooth as possible, and answer questions.

- Common misconceptions about divorce
