Many divorcing couples reach a settlement of their issues through the negotiation process. When this process is chosen each spouse retains his or her own attorney, who works to understand their client’s priorities and goals as well as the issues and facts of the case. After all pertinent information has been amassed and analyzed, proposals are put forward by each side and negotiations begin. When successful, the result is a mutually-agreed-upon divorce settlement that keeps the parties out of court.
