Divorce in North Carolina doesn’t have to involve protracted litigation or a nasty legal battle in court. Settlement negotiation may allow you to avoid the anxiety and stress of a hotly contested courtroom dispute. It may also prove to reduce legal fees and the costs associated with presenting claims in Family Court.
Depending on the willingness of the parties to negotiate in good faith, our Charlotte family law attorneys can work with you to draft settlement proposals and come to a fair settlement. Indeed, there are options such as collaborative law or a collaborative divorce in North Carolina that may allow for a mutually acceptable disposition of marital assets or agreements involving child visitation, joint custody, and even support.
Effective negotiation is, at least in part, often grounded in courtroom advocacy. That may seem odd. Why would negotiating a legal issue involve discussing trial strategies or the trial skills of your divorce lawyer?
