Is It Better To Divorce Than Stay In A High-Conflict Marriage?

It may surprise you to learn that high-conflict and not necessarily divorce is the greatest source of harm to children. According to the American Psychological Association (APA), research studies show children in high-conflict marriages are more likely to experience behavioral and academic problems such as aggression, disobedience, poor self-esteem and depression. Also, parents in high-conflict marriages tend to be less loving, harsher in discipline, more rejecting, withdrawn and depressed, which has a negative impact on their children.

In all cases, married or divorced, when parents get along and have low conflict, the children are better adjusted and do better emotionally and academically. It is safe to say that maintaining amicable relations as divorced parents is better for your children than continuing to subject them to intense conflict as a married couple.

The Process

Navigating the divorce process can be challenging, emotionally charged, and legally complex. At Palermo Law, we understand the difficulties our clients face, and we are here to guide you through each step with care and expertise.

  • Consultation: Begin your journey with a confidential consultation. You will either meet with Chris Palermo, or his partner Riley Perry. This is an opportunity for you to share your story, discuss your concerns, and gain insights into the legal options available to you. At Palermo Law, your initial consultation is always free.
  • Case Evaluation: After a thorough review of your case, we will provide a comprehensive evaluation, outlining potential strategies and the likely trajectory of your case. This is the foundation upon which we build a tailored legal approach.
  • Strategy Development: We work collaboratively with you to develop a legal strategy that aligns with your goals and priorities. Whether it involves negotiation, mediation, or litigation, our goal is to achieve the best possible outcome for you and your family.
  • Negotiation and MediationWhenever possible, we strive to reach amicable resolutions through negotiation or mediation. These alternative dispute resolution methods can be less adversarial, allowing for more control over the outcome and often resulting in quicker resolutions.
  • Litigation: In cases where litigation is necessary, our attorneys are well-prepared to assert your rights in the courtroom. We navigate the legal proceedings diligently, keeping your best interests at the forefront.
  • Resolution and Follow-Up: Whether through settlement, court decision, or alternative means, we ensure that the resolution of your case aligns with your objectives. Our commitment extends beyond the resolution, as we provide support for any necessary follow-up actions.

Divorce Litigation vs. Mediation

Divorce Litigation:
Divorce litigation involves resolving disputes through the court system. This traditional approach can be necessary when negotiations break down, and spouses cannot reach an agreement on key issues. While litigation can be more adversarial, it provides a structured process for resolving complex disputes related to property division, child custody, and support.

Mediation offers a more collaborative and less adversarial approach to divorce. A neutral third-party mediator facilitates discussions between spouses, guiding them toward mutually agreeable solutions. Mediation can be a more cost-effective and time-efficient option, allowing couples to retain greater control over the outcome of their divorce.

At Palermo Law, we are experienced in both divorce litigation and mediation. We assess each case individually, helping clients determine the most suitable approach based on their unique circumstances and goals.
