As you can see above, the overwhelming majority of all separating couples end up dividing their wealth within a predictable range.
Almost certainly, so will you. It's just a question of how much time, money and stress you end up spending to get there.
No, you can’t always get your own way in a divorce settlement. But you can achieve a “fair and reasonable” result and maximise your financial result – if you choose the right path to reach an agreement between you.
Compare the methods
Here's the key issue to understand: you only have a few methods to negotiate your settlement. If you can't sort it out between you, then you can (a) go to lawyers, or (b) go to court, or (c) go to mediators (eg Divorce Partners).
If you choose lawyers or courts, then whether you realise it or not, you’re choosing an adversarial path – you’re declaring war. That always makes it antagonistic, slow and expensive.
And the tragedy of those two options is this: you simply won't get a better financial result. You'll just burn up money and years of your life, for a worse outcome.
By contrast, at Divorce Partners we’re neutral, so we work for both of you, not just one side.
Whether your situation is amicable or hostile, mediation produces faster outcomes and superior net financial results at substantially lower cost than the alternatives.
At Divorce Partners, we use a “shuttle” mediation method, meaning we talk to you each separately by phone and email, over a 1-3 week period, exploring potential arrangements until we find a set of terms you both can live with.
No uncomfortable or stressful face-to-face negotiations with your ex. And no pressure to make on-the-spot decisions.
You won't get lost in complex legal theories where both sides are pushing for outrageously unfair terms. We keep things clean, simple and practical so you can sleep easy at night, knowing you ended up with a fair and reasonable outcome.
