Not all divorce options are created equal

Washington residents who are getting ready to officially end their marriages may have questions about the best way to go about it. There are several divorce options available, but not all are created equal. Which is best?

There is not one right way to divorce. Every case has unique issues, so what works for one couple may not work for another. When looking up divorce options online, there are four that tend to pop up -- outside of litigation. Those four are:

  • Lawyer-driven
  • Mediation
  • DIY
  • Online filing

Of those four, only two are really recommended and those are lawyer-driven and mediation. There are simply too many problems that can arise from trying to navigate the divorce process alone or by depending on information solely obtained online. Lawyer-driven divorces are where one's attorney takes the wheel and works to get one through the process and quickly and painlessly as possible -- all while working to achieve a fair and balanced divorce settlement. Sometimes litigation is necessary to resolve cases that go this route.

As far as mediation goes, this is for couples who have a desire to work out their own settlement terms but need some help. The goal is to avoid litigation if at all possible. Most divorcing couples are able to successfully mediate their dissolutions, even if they have complicated issues to tackle.

There are definitely some divorce options out there that are better than others. Washington residents who are preparing to dissolve their marriages just have to look at what is available to them and decide which route would best serve their needs. Legal counsel can offer guidance on this issue and provide further assistance getting one through the divorce process.
