If you are going to divorce, one of the most important decisions you will make is how you will divorce – what type of divorce you will have. The first question is whether you and your spouse will have a court divorce or divorce without court. A court divorce is a litigation involving adversarial lawyers. A divorce without court involves mediation or collaborative divorce. In this webinar you will learn the strengths and weaknesses of these methods of obtaining a divorce. You will be able to anonymously ask questions to a panel of experts.
