Alternatives to an Adversarial Divorce
- No court
Instead of damaging a family’s financial well-being and good will toward each other, the collaborative process promotes a restructured “healthy” family that continues to build the bonds that will be there forever, regardless of marital status, and protects those relationships from further injury.
Giving family members the ability to move forward with their lives in a positive way is the central focus of collaborative divorce. Children are not fought over or used as pawns in a cruel game of chess between parents. Instead, everyone works together to learn how to operate in this new family system.
Our law firm has been practicing problem-solving based family law since the early 1990s. We have seen the horrible effects the adversarial model has on families, and resolved to find alternatives to give families a better start on their new beginnings.
In addition to collaborative divorce, other problem-solving, client-centered divorce options include:
To Schedule a Consultation
Having an adversarial divorce is not the only way to end a marriage. You do have the option of working with your spouse to make your own decisions instead of letting lawyers and judges make them for you, leaving you dissatisfied with the outcome and dismayed at the financial and emotional expense. If you and your spouse cannot come to an agreement, we will provide strong and competent representation in court to bring your case to a successful resolution.
The initial consultation with the divorce lawyer often is the most important lawyer/client conference the client will ever have in their divorce process. Some divorce lawyers offer a free consultation. In some instances, the client will get what he or she paid. We charge for the initial consultation, which is not a casual event, but a time for the client to become educated in all matters pertinent to the divorce process.
