Litigating family law disputes, such as divorce, child custody, and support, can be overwhelming, expensive, and inefficient.
Alternative dispute resolution methods such as collaborative divorce and mediation encourage cooperation and give you and your spouse the opportunity to take control of your family-related legal matters.
Mediation allows for the development of creative solutions and provides certainty and finality when it comes to meeting the needs of you and your family. As your Mediator, we will help you and your spouse navigate through all of the issues that you will need to address in your divorce. During this process, you may also select independent legal advice from an attorney of your choice.
Collaborative Divorce utilizes a non-adversarial approach that empowers couples to come together, without the Court’s interjection, to establish workable outcomes for the specific needs of their family. Both parties select a collaborative divorce attorney and then work together to accomplish common goals and interests for the family.
In collaborative mediation, the mediator will address the legal aspects of the divorce centered around assisting the parties with a full-disclosure of assets/debts and options for distribution of the marital estate, determining support responsibilities (when appropriate) and the drafting of necessary paperwork to submit to the court to conclude the divorce.
