So what are your options when it comes to divorce?

There are really three main paths you can take, depending on your unique situation: adversarial, collaborative, and mediated.

Think back to the major milestones in your life.

How much preparation went into your wedding day, the purchase of your first home or the birth of your child? Did you go with the first minister, realtor or midwife you found, or did you spent several months pouring through every wedding magazine, real estate guide and baby book you could get your hands on?

If you’re like most people, you carefully plan your major life events. Why should your divorce be any different? Sure, emotions are running high, and a lot of couples’ initial inclination is to get it over with as fast as possible.

But taking the time to explore your options and plan a thoughtful divorce will give you and your family the long-term stability you need, instead of a quick fix that could come back to haunt you a few years down the road.

Adversarial Divorce

If you watched your own parents duke it out in the ’70s or ’80s, this is probably the first type of divorce that pops into your mind. This type of divorce is the most expensive way to end a marriage.

Collaborative Divorce

In a collaborative divorce, each spouse still has an attorney to guide them through the legal realities of divorce. With so many professionals involved, this approach can lead to some high costs.

Mediated Divorce

The mediated divorce is a step up from a do-it-yourself (DIY) divorce and can be a cost-effective method for couples that agree on the major aspects of their divorce.

We have the experience to fight for you if things have gone that far — but even if we are with you in the most hostile situations — we will protect you yet try to find a resolution by agreement whether during an adversarial battle, certainly in a collaborative divorce, or in mediation.
