We provide litigation-free Divorce options.
     It is a method of practicing law in which the lawyers for both sides agree to
assist the clients
by using cooperative techniques rather than adversarial
strategies and litigation. Often, a team approach is employed using a divorce
coach/facilitator and a neutral financial planner to h
elp with the financial and
emotional aspects that may interfere or block settlement.  The Team commits
themselves to achieving a negotiated outcome. It is agreed that no litigation
will be commenced during the negotiations.

    When parties are committed to settlement
, and the litigation option is
removed, creativity and flexibility becomes the norm.  The parties and their
lawyers enter into a “Participation Agreement” where it is agreed that if a
settlement is not reached, the lawyers will withdraw from the process and not
participate in the ensuing litigation.

    A collaborative case is less expensive than a court litigated case.  A
traditional court case includes: motions, discovery, hearings, trial and post-
issues.  A lot of billable time goes into preparing for these litigated matters,
including the telephone calls, email and time you’ll spend talking with your
lawyer about the plan, strategy, etc.   There is also the emotional costs
both you and your family spent thinking about or being upset about the
litigation.  Whereas, the collaborative process has proven to be a value-added
process, especially when using the team approach.

    With a collaborative divorce lawyer it is easier to reach an agreement
knowing that your best interest is represented. Each side has a lawyer backing
them, and at the same time knowing that everyone is working towards one
common goal-divorce.

answer any questions you may have about the process.
