Divorce has a popular reputation for being a lengthy and challenging legal process involving a bitter court battle. In reality, however, many divorce cases are never litigated in a courtroom; rather, couples choose to settle out of court. Still, divorce can be a stressful experience.
Knowing that a divorce could take a contentious turn, it's understandable why many couples might want to avoid this possibility. Even though divorcing couples might no longer see eye to eye, both spouses aren't always trying to exact "revenge" on the other. Thankfully, Connecticut law allows for mediated divorce, which is a cooperative approach to splitting up.
