Mediate or litigate? A comparison of what to expect.
|Litigate Your Divorce||Mediate Your Divorce|
|LOTS OF MONEY… In Clark County, NV, the average litigated divorce costs upwards of $30,000. Between hearings, discovery, trials, phone conversations and emails that you are charged for, even if you are awarded attorney fees, major funds are used.||NOT AS MUCH MONEY… At Steinberg Law Group, the combined mediation fees and paperwork preparation is normally less than $5000.|
|CHILDREN INVOLVED… If custody is contested, it is possible that the court may insist upon psychological evaluations of the children.||PROTECT YOUR CHILDREN… You determine what’s in the best interests of your kids.|
|A JUDGE DECIDES… You leave your future in the hands of a judge who really doesn’t know you or your family.||YOU DECIDE… You have complete control of your future.|
|PUBLIC… The entire court case, including your financial information, becomes public record. Details of your case are published on the Internet. Anyone can view this information.||PRIVATE… Mediation is a private, not published as public record. Everything said and decided remains confidential.|
|TIME SPENT… The availability of the judge, the court, and the attorneys all play into the amount of time it takes to complete your divorce.||SAVE TIME… Mediation is scheduled based on your convenience. Brian Steinberg is available before and after regular working hours by appointment.|
|DRAINING… No matter how strong you may be, hearing toxic testimony in court and having your name slung through the mud creates a draining, depressing atmosphere.||EMPOWERING… You will learn how to communicate in non-confrontational language and since the process is private, you will maintain your dignity. You have the tools to make the best of a bad situation.|
