3.  It costs less than divorce.  Much less.

4.  You have more control over the outcome of a dissolution than a divorce.  Since the parties must agree on all the decisions involved, you are involved in every decision made.  No decisions are made for you by a Judge.

5.  Dissolution is not about assigning fault.  You simply agree that you and your spouse are incompatible and make the decisions necessary to move on with your lives.

6.  Decisions regarding your children are made by the parents, not made by a stranger and imposed upon the whole family.

8.  There are no temporary orders while you and your spouse are making the decisions necessary to end the marriage.  Nobody is ordered to pay child support, nobody is ordered to pay spousal support (alimony), you each pay what you agree to pay and nothing more.

9.  Did I mention it costs less?  A lot less?

10.  The money you don’t spend on attorney fees for a long, drawn out, contested divorce can be left for you and your spouse to divide.  You can use it to start over.
