What happens when there is genuine disagreement?
If a divorcing couple cannot resolve their differences before approaching the Court the Judge, a total stranger, will impose a decision upon you. There are very few “wins” and “losses” in these cases.
This takes a lot of time (months or more than a year) and money, and most parties walk away dissatisfied. What is the alternative?
