Traditional divorce litigation is perhaps the most well-known and time-warn divorce process, in which both parties hire their own family law attorney and ultimately settle the dispute in family court.
Typically, conventional family law litigation is both more costly and more time consuming than both the collaborative and cooperative alternatives. On average, divorce litigation:
- Lasts anywhere from 10-24 months
- On average, minimum costs start at $20,000 per person
- Fails to resolve all issues satisfactorily for both parties, with a greater likelihood of subsequent litigation post-agreement of any initially unresolved issues
Due to the additional financial and emotional strains of a long and drawn-out divorce in family court, traditional litigation is not an ideal option for most spouses and is instead often a last resort for those parties in the midst of a highly adversarial or otherwise high-conflict dispute.
