Why You Should Consider Alternatives to Litigation
We understand that many of our clients wish to stay out of the courts as much as possible. When enduring a deeply emotional chapter of your life, why would you want to place additional strain on your family by dragging your laundry through a public courtroom?
Though some separating couples will have no choice but to go through the process of litigation, others can experience the freedom of working through a collaborative divorce. Collaborative divorce simply refers to the process of ending a marriage "collaboratively," or together, until a satisfactory resolution is reached. This allows the separating couple to discuss various elements of their separation with the help and guidance of legal professionals – without having the court get involved!
