My wife and I have agreed to almost everything, but she wants me to have slightly less visitation than I would like. I think I could win in court, but I keep reading that it’s better to settle. Which option is best?
It is almost always better to settle your divorce case than it is to litigate it. This is because settlement gives you both more control over your life and schedule. If the disagreement is truly minor–over a single day or two–it’s likely better to settle. It’s a good idea to consult with a lawyer first, to get an idea of your chances of success in court, and to ensure the settlement is fair to all parties.
