How We Can Help You
The firm often represents clients in matrimonial situations using the collaborative divorce model. In collaborative divorce, both parties and their attorneys sign a participation agreement agreeing to use their honest and best efforts to resolve matters without the use of litigation. The participants and the attorneys meet to discuss and resolve all issues with a focus on meeting the best interests of the parties in view of financial and personal realities.
In many instances of collaborative divorce there will be a team approach utilizing experts to help the parties and their attorneys analyze and determine issues, such as parenting, access and financial issues. During the process, each party is represented by an attorney to advise him or her of the legal implications of decisions and to draft and/or review final written agreements. During four-way meetings, the parties and the team professionals, collaborate in reaching a fair and equitable resolution.
