Guidance Towards A Brighter Future
Simplifying the divorce process so you can enter the next chapter in your life.
You’ve decided. You and your spouse are getting a divorce but you’re divorcing amicably. No blame, no finger-pointing—you just need to dissolve the marriage.
At Otto Family Law, we’re pleased to offer a simplified and effective divorce alternative with our Divorce in a Day™ system. Our experienced Wisconsin mediation attorneys will be your knowledgeable guide and mediator to give you the information you need to do your divorce right, while helping you reach an agreement in areas you don’t see eye-to-eye.
Mediation during divorce is a process in which you and your partner negotiate a settlement that is in your best interests and that of your family. Couples seeking divorce and domestic partners seeking separation often and successfully use mediation as a voluntary settlement process. During divorce mediation, couples can make rational decisions about their future, and create a respectful and cooperative environment. Our Wisconsin divorce mediators can help you reach an agreement that suits you and your family’s needs.
Through the Divorce in a Day™ process, we will get the necessary dissolution paperwork completed in just one day. You get all of this while saving an average of 70% over the cost of a traditional divorce.
You and your former partner must then wait the required 120 day waiting period, get a court date, and appear before the judge. With your paperwork already done, this process should be a cinch and your divorce will be finalized without the stress, cost, or time necessary in traditional divorce proceedings.
Mediation is a form of alternative dispute resolution (ADR) that allows both parties to discuss and settle matters such as child custody and support, property division, and more outside of court with the help of an unbiased third party known as a mediator. Mediation allows couples to come up with their own solutions privately and amicably with the help of a trained mediator rather than spend time and money publicly battling it out in divorce court.
Typically, most parties have two choices when ending a marriage—traditional divorce or mediation. While the former tends to be the more popular route, couples who both agree to a divorce and are willing to work together to come up with solutions outside of court tend to benefit far more from mediation.
At Otto Family Law, we have streamlined the mediation process through our Divorce in a Day™ system. If you think that you and your spouse can cooperate together and work with one another to reach an agreement, we’d be happy to offer a free 15-minute telephone conversation to explain the process and answer any questions you have. This will help you decide if Divorce in a Day™ is right for you.
If you choose to pursue a resolution to your divorce via mediation, there are many benefits to choosing a form of alternative dispute resolution. This process can save you time, money, and stress by helping you avoid a lengthy court trial.
Often, mediation is much faster than trial and they can also provide the benefit of allowing you to find a custom solution for your unique situation. During a trial, an objective judge who does not know your family will make a final decision on your case, whereas alternative dispute resolution methods like mediation allow you to tailor your decision to meet your specific needs and the needs of your family.
While mediation is an effective and easy way to end a marriage, it won’t work for everyone. Mediation is best for couples who remain on relatively good terms, and both agree to end the marriage. If your divorce is contested or is the result of domestic violence or abuse, you may benefit more from traditional divorce court.
Fortunately, if mediation turns out not to work for you and your spouse, there is nothing barring you from subsequently going down the traditional divorce route. So, if you believe you and your partner could benefit from Divorce in a Day™, we suggest at least giving us a call to discuss your options. We are happy to provide you with information you deserve that will help you make wise choices about your future and that of your family.
