A Trusted Divorce Lawyer Who Can Help

Matters of divorce and family law issues can be very delicate due to the emotionally charged conflicts that surround the intensely personal matters of custody, children, finances, and more. The decisions that you make during a divorce are permanent, and it’s incredibly crucial that you have an experienced professional lawyer on your side to help you receive the best possible outcome. When you understand the options that you have in regards to family law or divorce processes, you can help to restructure your family in a way that’s positive, and move forward with no regret.

Traditional Litigation

Litigation is the traditional divorce process in which both parties hire attorneys to represent them in negotiations and court hearings as follows:

  • Each attorney advocates positions based on the client’s personal wants, needs and viewpoints.
  • Parties communicate primarily through their attorneys regarding their positions, proposals, and counterproposals.
  • The process may involve a formal legal procedure known as “discovery” in order to obtain financial and other relevant information.
  • Most litigation divorces are eventually settled, but only after spending substantial time, money and emotion.
  • Parties are often ultimately dissatisfied with the outcome and are likely to return to court to change the outcome or resolve disputes.

Mediation Services May Help You Avoid The Courtroom

Mediation is a voluntary process in which both parties jointly make decisions based on their views and the reality they face. A mediator facilitates discussions, but does not give advice or make decisions. He or she uses non-adversarial problem-solving techniques to reach an agreement.

Mediation can be used to deal with the issues that arise in the context of:

  • Divorce & legal separation
  • Custody and visitation
  • Valuation & division of property
  • Spousal & child support
  • Pre-nuptial and post-nuptial agreements
