A divorce may be a stressful, complicated and weary process for Louisiana couples ending their marriage. However, being organized and documenting as much as possible can help in court proceedings or mediation, and help a spouse carefully and calmly deal with issues.
Mediation is often recommended before going to trial, especially when the couple must deal with business assets. This generally is a less expensive and stressful process, which involves the spouses negotiating their own resolution of divorce legal issues outside of court and before an impartial mediator. Being organized, prepared and having a clear goal can help during this negotiation process and facilitate its success.
