Because divorce is a problem to be solved, not a battle to be won, I focus on alternatives to the court system through collaborative law and mediation. I believe that most families and children are best served by being supported to work together in resolving their family matters.
The fundamental goal in both collaborative divorce and mediation is client empowerment.
With either mediation or the collaborative process, you will have control of the decisions that are made and will be firmly supported, legally and emotionally, in achieving a successful dissolution of your relationship.
This not only allows, but also encourages you and your partner to create, or leave open, lines of communication that are of enormous benefit to the whole family.
Working as a team, we can achieve a successful resolution of the issues in dispute without the bitterness and acrimony engendered by the adversarial process.
