Negotiation Or Litigation
Ohio law provides two ways to end a marriage: dissolution and divorce. For more information about the differences between them, see the Family Law FAQ page. Essentially, the difference boils down to whether the parties negotiate their own settlement or let the court decide questions of property division, spousal support, child custody, parenting time and child support. Out-of-court negotiations can resolve many of these issues.
Compared with courtroom litigation, negotiation is generally faster and less expensive. Mediation is a form of negotiation that is guided by a neutral third party, and it can be very effective for resolving family law disputes.
Of course, there are cases where divorcing spouses or other clients simply won’t or can’t work together, and their disputes can only be resolved through litigation at court.
Mr. Delligatti has the skills, knowledge and experience to take your case to mediation, negotiation or court, wherever you must go to secure the best results.
