Your Relationships & Kids
Loving, nurturing relationships are important. However, if your relationship is deteriorating it can cause stress, anxiety, confusion and unhappiness. It’s during these trying times that you need solid guidance through the legal system to ensure you are making the best decisions for yourself and your family. Whether you are drawing up a prenuptial agreement, designing a parenting plan, or need to understand your divorce options, our experienced attorneys are here to help you build a thoughtful future.
Getting a divorce? You have options.
Divorce litigation - TRAditional divorce
You are likely familiar with the traditional divorce option. This option works well for clients who need legal protection from a spouse. Your attorney will fully represent you in court, file motions on your behalf, and argue your case in front of the Judge.
Collaborative Divorce is an option for couples to work out their divorce settlement together with the support of attorneys, a mental health professional and a financial planner. Collaborative divorce enables you to achieve a settlement that meets your specific needs without the underlying threat of court. Collaborative divorce focuses on your children and allows you to end your marriage but retain a functional relationship with your ex.
Mediation is an option for couples to work out a divorce settlement together with a neutral attorney-mediator. Over the course of several meetings, our professionally trained attorney mediator walks you and your spouse through all necessary divorce arrangements, including a parenting plan and property settlement agreement. As a neutral, your attorney-mediator will record your agreements in the proper legal format so you can file with the Court.
kitchen table divorce
The Kitchen Table option is designed for couples who agree on the terms of their divorce or are able to make their agreements with limited help from an attorney. In the Kitchen Table divorce we give you worksheets to complete either independently or together with your spouse at “the kitchen table” or another comfortable location. Once completed we draft your legal documents and show you how to file with the Court.
