Mediation and/or Arbitration
A divorce can be very simple and relatively inexpensive or it can be very complicated and costly (both emotionally and financially). The reality is that the more issues that can be agreed upon by your spouse and you in your divorce the less stressful and inexpensive it will be. Unfortunately, it only takes one unreasonable or unrealistic party to make the process more complicated, stressful, and expensive.
It is never Barre’s goal to go to trial, and, given his many years of experience, he understands the value of an out-of-court resolution for your family and you. Therefore, Barre settles a high percentage of the divorce cases he handles. However, sometimes the circumstances require the Court’s involvement, and, if necessary, Barre does not hesitate to proceed to trial. As a matter of fact, Barre excels in the Courtroom.
Almost all cases will have a mediation or a settlement conference to try to resolve outstanding issues, and Barre will guide you through the process and explain everything every step of the way.
Fortunately, the majority of cases reach a settlement without court intervention, but for those cases that end up going before the court Barre will be ready, and he will prepare you for all aspects of the case.
