Negotiating divorce settlements in Ohio and around the country involves tackling some delicate and potentially contentious matters. Discussing issues like spousal support and property division can be difficult when spouses harbor animosity toward one another or the marital estate is complex, but leaving these matters for a judge to decide involves taking risks and airing grievances in public. Resolving civil matters in court can also be expensive, but there are alternative approaches to dispute resolution that could help spouses to reach amicable agreements even in situations where protracted litigation seems inevitable.
