Alternatives to Divorce Court:
Nobody I know looks forward to divorce: Its hard! When you decide its over, you do have options to the tired old refrain, “See you in court!”
Collaboration or Mediation are better choices for most couples
My primary goal has always been to help my clients get through a difficult time in their lives with the least amount of wasted time, emotional pain and unnecessary expense.
I opened my law office in 1978 and have been in solo practice ever since. Over the years, my family practice has grown by word-of-mouth and referrals from colleagues and satisfied clients. I no longer do contested hearings, trials or last-minute settlements because my clients’ goals were not being achieved. I am convinced the “better way” is Collaborative Divorce (and its little sibling, Mediation)!
The heart of Collaborative Divorce (also called “no-court divorce,” “divorce with dignity,” or “peaceful divorce”) is to offer you and your spouse the support, protection and guidance of your own lawyers without going to court. Additionally, Collaborative Divorce allows you the benefit of child and financial specialists, divorce coaches and other professionals, all working together on your team.
Speaking of “TEAM,” check out my practice group, BridgesDivorce.com We are the original Portland-area Collaborative Divorce practice group.
