Collaborative Divorce Law- Often The Best Alternative for Divorcing Couples
Please ask us about Collaborative Divorce Law! It’s the best way to go for many.
It doesn’t have to be this way. A growing number of divorcing couples, along with other professionals including divorce lawyers, mental health professionals, and financial specialists have been working with a more constructive alternative to the traditionally litigated divorce. These professionals have developed the Collaborative Law Practice model.
Collaborative Law Practice is a reasonable approach to divorce based on three principles:
- A pledge not to go to court
- An honest exchange of information by both spouses
- A solution that takes into account the priorities of both adults and their children
Mutual respect is fundamental to the collaborative way. When respect is given and received, discussions are more productive and an agreement reached more easily. Himes & Hearn is committed to this beneficial process.
Please ask us for more information about the collaborative process.
