Schwartz, Fox & Saltzman, LLC. – Philadelphia Divorce Lawyers
Divorce is by nature a complex matter even when there are few points of disagreement between spouses. Through divorce, one legal unit — a married couple — becomes two. Property and debts must be divided. One spouse may need to pay spousal support to the other before the divorce and/or alimony afterward. Child custody and child support may be an issue when there are minor children involved. All of these components of divorce bring with them special challenges and potential glitches, even when a divorce is not contested.
When a divorce is contested, on the other hand, the divorce process can be much more difficult and lengthy.
It is far better for a husband and wife to make decisions in the best interests of one or both through Divorce Mediation or Collaborative Family Law methods. Even in the case of a contested divorce, we urge our clients at the Schwartz, Fox & Saltzman, LLC. to participate in alternative dispute resolution pathways to divorce. It is unrealistic to expect that a Family law Judge, with limited knowledge of the specifics of a marriage and a household, will be better able to determine what is fair than for the spouses themselves to work through the challenges of an out-of-court divorce settlement agreement.
