Hello, my name is Susan Farris and my hobby is learning about the law. I have an uncle who is an attorney and I've always looked up to him and that's why I find subjects on law very interesting. Through speaking with my uncle and doing research on my own, I've learned about all the different fields of law. Each field of law centers on its own subject and most attorneys specialize in a certain area of law. These include criminal, personal injury, family, bankruptcy, criminal, immigration and business. I find each one of these fields very interesting and I have the utmost admiration for lawyers because they help people through their legal struggles. I wanted to share this information with others who have questions about the different types of attorneys and the law.
Conventional wisdom will tell you that settling out of court is the best strategy for the least stressful divorce possible, and while that's true in many cases, divorce was never meant to be a one-size-fits-all solution. What works for others may not work for you, and there are times when going to court simply makes more sense than sitting through months of frustrating negotiations. Here are some unexpected perks you can get by taking your case to the court:
Put an End to Explosive Arguments
Although tensions run just as high in courts as in mediation rooms, vocal arguments aren't tolerated in any court of law. If your spouse refuses to stop being verbally abusive in the negotiation stage, taking your disagreements to court can help you avoid more emotional distress.
Avoid Aggressive Attorneys
Clients aren't always the problem. While the majority of attorneys will remain respectful and professional at every stage of the divorce process, your spouse may end up with one of the rare few who use intimidation and aggression to bully the other side into a compromise they don't want. You can ask your spouse to switch counsel, but if that fails, divorce court can be an attractive alternative.
Get a Faster Resolution
What if abusive language isn't a problem but lack of language is? Some people, especially spouses who feel hurt or blindsided by their divorce, can lock up and refuse to budge on even the smallest details of the settlement. Expecting a slow-moving divorce is realistic, but when your negotiations are at a standstill, it may be time to escalate the pressure to move forward.
End Unethical Behavior
Much worse than a hurt spouse who doesn't want to talk is the spouse who will do anything to exact revenge, including lying, forging documents and hiding assets. If your spouse is showing warning signs that he or she may turn vengeful, going to court sooner rather than later may save you from wasting your time and money on untangling their schemes.
One important thing to keep in mind when you consider divorce court is that most people fear the court process because they know very little about it, and not necessarily because it's going to be a bad experience. Talking to a divorce attorney about what to expect will take the mystery out of the court process and help you plan the best course of action for your situation.Share
