A divorce is one of the most difficult experiences a person may go through in their lifetime, much like a death. Most people want to go through this transition privately and without creating more conflict. I want to help families navigate their divorce in a respectful and healthy way. It is possible to minimize, if not eliminate, the impact a divorce has on one's children and Collaborative Law encourages this. Preserving the co-parent relationships moving forward for the benefit of one's children is essential. Even if one does not have children, Collaborative Law helps the healing process begin in a mutually respectful manner.
Further, most people would like to make their own decisions in their divorce as they know what is going to work best for their own family; Collaborative divorce supports this.
Even if Collaborative Law is not the perfect fit for your divorce or family law case, there are many other options rather than traditional litigation. I encourage people to explore all the alternatives to litigation with an experienced attorney and pick something that fits their individual family.
I do not do any litigation cases any longer, but usually the cases do not need to end up in litigation if there are skilled conflict resolution attorneys working on the case.
