AREAS OF PRACTICE
Both of the sides to a divorce must get their own representation. It is crucial to have a skilled lawyer on your side that can advocate aggressively on your behalf and protect your interests and rights. Whether you need assistance with a divorce or you need help with filing a restraining order or some other matters relating to family law, my law practice is here to help you through the entire case.
I handle all kinds of family law issues, such as:
RESOLVE ISSUES WITH MEDIATION
Lots of couples think that the only way to avoid vicious disputes and get their negotiations handled effectively is to have a court-supervised divorce agreement. But when a spouse is left out of the process, it’s hard for their best interests to get covered. The final decision of a judge on the agreement within a divorce or other martial arrangements may leave one or more spouses to face difficult challenges in the future.
Mediation is one alternative to divorce that allow spouses to keep control of the negotiations and help keep their best interest in sight. With help from a mediator, couples may negotiate and come to terms that benefit all involved parties. Mediation can be used for pre-nuptial agreements, divorce, or almost any marital arrangements that call for legal actions. Consider the use of mediation to save money, time and unnecessary trouble!
CONSIDERING COLLABORATIVE DIVORCE
Like mediation, collaborative divorce is a traditional divorce alternative. Unlike mediation, collaborative divorces do not use third-party mediators. Couples meet with their attorney outside the courts and negotiate agreements without the court’s supervision. With this option, each spouse signs an agreement to not go to court.
Typically, this process starts by both spouses giving full disclosures of income and assets. After this information gets gathered, lawyers for the couples will draft an agreement. With each spouses approval, their attorneys will present the agreement to the court for approval, saving expense and time by avoiding litigation in court.

The most common mistake people make when dealing with this type of dispute is hiring general practice lawyers to handle a family law case. Family law consists of several legal matters that can only be effectively handled by a family law attorney. Lawyers that handle a family law matter every once in awhile often lack the experience and knowledge to handle divorce cases. When your family is on the line, you can’t settle for less.
