Your Divorce Lawyer Shouldn’t Do Better When You Do Worse
Lately, I have noticed the commercial for financial advisors that promotes, “we do better when you do better”.
The message in this commercial is clear and it makes sense. The financial advisor is working together with you towards a common goal, to help you make money. They benefit when they help you to accomplish your goal, make money.
The relationship you have with an hourly divorce attorney is not nearly as straight forward. In most cases, the more that you fight in court, the more money that your divorce attorney makes.
For just about everyone that I come across, the goal in your divorce is not to fight in court.
The question then becomes, do I have to fight in court and pay unknown hourly fees to get a fair divorce settlement? No, you do not.
The collaborative divorce process allows us to:
- Analyze the facts and finances that are unique to your marriage;
- Use our knowledge of divorce law and our experience to help you resolve your divorce without fighting in court;
- Finalize your divorce in less than 6 months.
- Provide this service to you for a fixed fee.
This process allows us to work with you as a team. We work toward the common goal of identifying and resolving each issue in your divorce, without fighting in court.
We don’t wait for court dates and trials. We work to resolve your divorce privately, promptly and with respect. We work to do this in 3-6 months.
Our upfront and transparent cost helps to reduce tension. We work with you to reach your goals in divorce and to move on with your life. We don’t send you hourly bills and ask for more money.
I hope that this information is helpful for you, your friends, or your clients. If you or someone that you know has questions about divorce, we are here to help.
