Collaborative Divorce Puts YOU in Control

The goal or intended outcome in a litigated divorce is not always clear.  In some bad examples, a litigated divorce is a long drawn out court battle that leads to nowhere.  A judge will render a final judgment after a contested trial that may not make either spouse feel like they “won”.

In contrast to litigation, Collaborative Divorce allows us to state our intended goal from the outset of the matter in very clear terms.  The goals for your divorce in the Collaborative process are determined by you and set out in very clear terms.

The intended outcome in your Collaborative Divorce is very clear.  In fact, we will work with you to spell out your most important goals at the outset of our employment relationship with you.  The goals that you define for your Collaborative Divorce often  address how you will move forward in the immediate future after the divorce, how your family will be treated with respect throughout the process and how your financial security will look following the divorce.

Collaborative Divorce allows us to enter into a written agreement to have your divorce settled outside of court.  Therefore, a judge that you have never met will no be the decision maker for the most important things in your life.  You will be the decision maker.

We will provide you with legal advice and guidance to assure that no mistakes are made and that the final resolution for your divorce is fair and meets with all requirements under the law.
