Georgia spouses who would like to have an amicable divorce may decide to pursue mediation. Litigation is not always the answer for individuals, especially if they may be able to reach a mutual decision that is in the best interest for both of them. Mediation may help couples negotiate their divorce.
In Georgia and elsewhere, a contested divorce can easily become a complex wrangle of financial disputes, and these cases get even more complicated when legal fees are at issue. This was the case in California, where the principle asset owned by a divorcing husband and wife happened to be a major league baseball team. The couple finally managed to reach a settlement but found themselves back in court when the ex-wife contested the agreement.
