Not all divorces have to see the inside of a courtroom. Even though you and your husband own some high-value assets such as a second home, investment accounts and even a family business, you do not have to let a judge decide which one of you gets what in the divorce. Instead, you and your future ex can negotiate a fair settlement without ever stepping into the courtroom.
