Mediation and Collaborative Divorce
Mediation: A Viable Alternative to Traditional Divorce Methods
Over the years, we, the skilled legal team of
Indianapolis divorce attorneys at Hollingsworth & Zivitz, have noticed an upward trend for divorcing
couples to choose mediation as a way to settle their divorce. Mediation
is an alternative dispute resolution, which allows a couple to amicably
go their separate ways. Divorce doesn't have to be emotionally or
financially draining, and mediation proves that.
The advantages of mediation also include the following:
- A more private setting to settle your divorce
- Receive a more hands-on approach to your divorce
- Saves you time and money in comparison to a traditional divorce

Collaborative Law: Enabling More Peaceful Divorce Negotiations
A collaborative divorce is an excellent option for two individuals who
are ready to end a marriage, but want to do so in as peaceful a manner
as possible. Through thoughtful negotiations, both spouses can reach an
agreement that is mutually beneficial, without the added stressor of the
presence of a judge or divorce court. During a collaborative divorce,
your attorney is responsible for facilitating negotiations, ensuring that
all legal requirements are met as assets are divided, child custody is
negotiated, and spousal support terms are set.
The benefits of working with a collaborative divorce attorney include:
- Settling your divorce without the stress and expense of court
- Maintaining a level of mutual respect between all parties
- Higher level of protection for any children involved
- Personally negotiate settlements, increasing the likelihood that the final
agreement will be mutually beneficial
- Gentle direction by your attorney for each settlement meeting, increasing
