The divorce process is widely known to be both difficult and stressful. A toxic relationship, for example, could make every conversation you have a challenging one. Going through a divorce can also be difficult for people who separate on positive terms. There are a number of different circumstances that could make your specific situation harder.
It is important to explore all of your options when you are going through a divorce. Depending on your specific circumstances, you may believe that litigation is your only choice. Fortunately, there are alternative options available that allow you the same formality and finality without some of the drawbacks.
