In most cases, a divorce settlement can be achieved without the intervention of the court, by some form of negotiation, mediation or collaborative means. When spouses are unable to come to an agreement, their case is then presented to the court.
The Supreme Court has the power to decide issues of divorce, property division, maintenance, support and custody.
Traditional dispute resolution is the option that most people know about. Each person hires a lawyer to handle the divorce. Whether a person is negotiating a settlement or presenting a case to the court, he or she needs a knowledgeable and experienced divorce lawyer to get the benefit of all the law has to offer. The attorney represents one spouse in the traditional attorney-client relationship that may involve litigation or result in a negotiated settlement. Litigation in court is costly from the financial and emotional perspective. However, certain family matters can only be resolved through litigation.
