Even though mediation is a great option for many divorcing couples, it doesn’t work for everyone. Sometimes couples have to go to court in order to resolve their differences.

Under what circumstances will divorcing couples need to go to court? Litigation may be necessary when couples cannot come to an agreement about how to deal with all the issues in their divorce. If there has been spousal or child abuse in the family, or in certain situations involving financial mistrust, divorce litigation may be the only option.

Sometimes couples are able to resolve some of their issues in mediation, but then need to go to court to resolve others. Every divorcing couple is different, and that is why it is important to talk to an experienced divorce attorney to find out what the best path would be for you to take as you go through the divorce process.
