Ending Things Amicably
You want to make the divorce process as easy on your family as possible. We handle both uncontested and collaborative divorces. If you can work together with your spouse and you would like to maintain the best possible relationship, collaborative divorce may offer you the chance you are looking for. Avoiding the heated arguments of the courtroom, it will allow you to come up with a plan for the following:
- Child custody
- Child support
- Property division
How the Collaborative Divorce Process Works
Collaborative law takes place when both parties and their lawyers agree not to litigate over property division, child custody and support. Working with a team of family law attorneys, therapists, child psychologists, real estate agents and financial planners, we will provide you with an environment and a comprehensive approach to dispute resolution.
The entire process generally takes six to nine months. This may sound a lot, but it is shorter and less expensive than most divorce proceedings. More importantly, it will give you the opportunity to maintain control over your agreements, rather than having the court impose a decision for your family. You will not be able to file until you have been separated for a year, but you can start the process and reach agreements before that time.
