30+ Years Experience In Family & Mediation Law. Call Now For A Free Consultation
AFTER 30 YEARS OF PRACTICING LAW, I HAVE FOUND THAT LITIGATION ONLY HARMS THE FAMILY THAT IS TRANSFORMING INTO A DIFFERENT MODEL. EVERYONE EXPERIENCES THIS PERIOD DIFFERENTLY. IN MOST CASES THERE IS UNPLEASANTNESS, PAINFUL DECISIONS ARE BEING MADE AND CHANGES ARE OCCURING WHETHER DESIRED OR NOT.
SPOUSES AND PARENTS SEPARATING DESERVE PRIVACY, SAFETY, FAIRNESS AND DIGNITY IN TRANSITIONING TO THE NEXT STAGE OF THEIR LIVES. THEY OWE THESE GIFTS TO THEMSELVES AND TO THEIR CHILDREN. COLLABORATIVE DIVORCE AND DIVORCE MEDIATION DURING A SEPARATION OFFERS THIS SERVICE IN A PEACEFUL AND REASONABLE FASHION.
COLLABORATIVE DIVORCE PROVIDES EACH PARTY WITH AN ATTORNEY AND A MENTAL HEALTH COACH TO EASE THIS TRANISITION AND ALLOW FAIRNESS. A CHILD SPECIALIST IS APPOINTED FOR THE CHILDREN WHOSE LIVES ARE BEING INPACTED. THE USE OF A NEUTRAL FINANCIAL SPECIALIST ALLOWS THE PARTY TO EXPLORE OPTIONS IN COLLABOARTIVE LAW AND/OR MEDIATION THAT ARE NOT OTHERWISE AVAILABLE DURING THIS PERIOD IN THEIR LIVES.
ARBITRATION CAN OFFER A PRIVATE FORUM TO RESOLVE ISSUES WITHOUT MAJOR CONFLICT.
