When is litigation preferable to mediation in divorce?

The way that divorce is handled usually depends on whether you are on good terms with your ex. Some spouses make a mutual decision to end their marriage, and may even come out of the divorce as friends. However, other spouses might have been torn apart by jealousy or explosive fights, which may make a collaborative divorce impossible.

Fathers and bias in child custody cases

Some fathers in Hawaii who are going through a divorce might wonder whether they will be at a disadvantage in a child custody case. Traditionally, this was true since mothers often stayed home with their children while fathers went to work. As a result, when couples got divorced, it was assumed that the mother would be the best caregiver for the children.

It is possible for two reasonable adults to pursue a divorce in a respectful manner without having to battle with each other at every turn. By making the decision to take on this task together, they can reap several benefits.
