Nine Ways to Reduce your Legal Costs in Family Law Part 4 of 4

8. Compromise, compromise, compromise. There is a saying in domestic law with respect to the husband and wife: “No one wins. It’s more a question of how well the mutual loss is controlled.” In other words, the court is going to try and realize fairness. Understanding that this middle of the road approach controls; it makes sense that you help yourself get to the middle of the road. Be flexible, be creative, and be compromising. Work toward settlement, rather than entrenchment. The more amicable the conduct between the spouses, the more likely the matter can be resolved quickly. The less time the lawyer spends on the case, the less time the lawyer bills for. By law the spouses must deal fairly and in good faith with each other. It is much easier, and cheaper, to follow the law and bring the matter to a swift conclusion, then it is to pursue some unreasonable objective (i.e., vindication against the other spouse, attempting to come out of the matter better than the other spouse by hiding assets, etc.). The rules exist for a reason. Play by them! 9. Consider alternatives to litigation. To get judgment in a domestic dispute you have to

go through the legal system. However, the last place you want to find yourself during this process is in the courthouse. Court appearances, hearings, and trials all take an inordinate amount of time. And as we know, time is money. It’s not uncommon to have to pay a lawyer for four hours of sitting and waiting in the courtroom, just so that she can speak to the judge for ten minutes. Fortunately, there are alternatives. Mediation is a very effective procedure for realizing a settlement and completing your domestic action. The parties meet with a neutral attorney who renders advice, gives guidance, facilitates a settlement, and processes the paperwork with the court. Typically mediation is cheaper than litigation.
