Getting divorced is a personal decision that impacts the lives of at least two people and, many times, quite a few more as well. Many Pennsylvania spouses hope to negotiate their settlements without going to court. However, it's not always possible, especially if you're involved in a highly contentious relationship. There are certain signs that suggest that family law mediation may not be the best choice to fit a particular divorce situation.
No two Pennsylvania marriages are exactly the same; therefore, neither are any two divorces. When a couple chooses to divorce, they often encounter various challenges regarding child custody, property division or other issues that can make the entire process quite stressful. The good news is that there are support systems in place to help spouses minimize stress and maximize their changes of achieving fair and agreeable settlements.
