Often parties find that they are able to come to an agreement through counsel without having to go to court. This process certainly is encouraged not only by the judicial system, but also by counsel. Through successful negotiation parties can achieve a common ground more efficiently, as it takes less time and less expense. Negotiation can result in separation agreements, cohabitation agreements and even marriage contracts. Negotiation also saves parties time, as they do not have to adhere to a lengthy court process. In turn, it also costs less and gives more control to the parties themselves.
