Two weeks ago my client filed for a TPO and today was hearing day. However, myself and opposing counsel were able to work together and with the help of a very effective mediator, the parties reached a full settlement. The total cost for my client? Approximately $4,000, including mediation.
Divorce doesn't need to be a long, expensive and miserable experience. Two key factors important to a "civilized" divorce...(1) No one, including the parties or counsel plays the fool!
(2) Both parties realize that going to go court is not the best approach...the most expensive but, not the best.
