The reality is that many marriages end. The end can be seamless and amicable, or it can be contentious and drawn out. A Farmington Hills divorce attorney may be able to help couples create a more amicable process, while reaching fair and equitable results in the divorce settlement. Nonetheless, some Michigan couples still have a hard time seeing eye-to-eye in a divorce. In these cases, it is important to keep the fighting and controversy away from any children because divorce can have a negative impact on children.
Thankfully, there are ways to reduce the impact on kids. Parents can seek other routes to divorce outside of litigation. Mediation or collaborative divorce tends to be more cordial. The process also seems to take less time when a judge and courtroom are not involved. The less time children have to worry about the divorce, the better.
