Divorce is more than just dividing your money and time with your children. It should be more than trying to assert power over your spouse through an adversarial system. At its core, divorce is about grief, loss and transformation. Divorce will transform your identity and your relationships. What that looks like is up to you. When considering a divorce, the most important question is which approach should we use? Kitchen Table, Mediation, Collaborative Divorce or Litigation.
What to Expect
At our initial consultation, you can expect:
- Us to listen carefully, without judgment
- To offer initial guidance to make an informed decision about how to move forward
- To be advised on the value of working with a mental health professional
- To be informed about the basic law of divorce, custody, property division, spousal and child support
- To understand your options: Kitchen Table, Mediation, Collaborative Divorce or Litigation
Divorce is by far the hardest thing I have ever done. But, I’m grateful to have had your services within the Collaborative Law process that provided certain emotional parameters-a sort of code that is informed and guided by your experience-to work towards my own long term wellness and the well-being of my kids.
Our Family in Two Homes
A resource package that combines the knowledge of a collaborative family lawyer and a comprehensive workbook, so your family can make the healthiest possible transition to two homes.
I wanted a peaceful divorce…I think it is helpful to use the collaborative approach when the separation and divorce is mostly amicable. I found it helpful to have my lawyer representing my needs which is a step up from mediation where you have to stand up for yourself and best outcome. I appreciated the sensitivity to difficult emotions and subjects of all the team members.
