There are various approaches that set our firm apart. First, our firm leverages technology to save our clients’ money. Also, our team is very compassionate and applies our understanding of mental health to each case. We work to nurture an open and inviting space. When we foster a safe environment, it becomes easier for clients to share their feelings or to be vulnerable. Additionally, our team is highly trained and experienced in taking our client’s emotions steadily and with composure. For example, even if a client becomes upset with our team, no one will hold a grudge. We will remain inclined to assist with compassion and patience the next time we meet.
Setting realistic goals is a critical part of our firm’s process. When a potential client comes and sits in our office, I let them know that twenty different lawyers will give them twenty different answers. The only answers I will provide them are based on real first-hand experiences. I’m not going to set up clients with false expectations. Instead, we will get straight to the reality of the matter. This works out for clients because if I can provide a realistic expectation and we surpass those goals, it’s going to feel like a huge win.
We also intend to frequently communicate with our clients using various forms of communication. We encourage clients to reach us however best fits for them, whether that be through social media or through phones, texts, or email. We have not approved carrier pigeons yet but we’ll have them as soon as the bar allows it.
What Is The Collaborative Process Your Firm Offers To Divorce Clients?
Collaborative law allows clients the freedom to patiently and jointly outline the terms of a divorce. Proceeding with the collaborative process releases separating individuals from the limitations of minimum state legal standards. The collaborative process is particularly effective for parents who know that they can co-parent. It’s also fantastic for business-oriented people because it’s no different from negotiating to sell a business or enter into a contract.
The collaborative process allows the opportunity to reflect and decide on the terms of separation before going to court.
What Are The Obvious Major Benefits To The Collaborative Process?
The most useful benefit is taking control of your life away from the court system. Doing so could be beneficial because the court system has rules.
We can predict with some certainty what a court may do. However, the court process does not always get followed, and we don’t always know how the court will rule. Collaborative divorce removes the risk of leaving the conditions of your post-divorce life to a third party, allowing clients to be the author of their next chapter. It also substantially reduces the cost of litigation.
Is Collaborative Divorce Right For Everyone?
Collaborative divorce certainly is not appropriate in domestic violence cases. Collaboration would expose survivors of domestic violence to the risk factor of continued manipulation or abuse. Therefore, it’s simply not a practical approach in these cases.
Collaborative divorce also requires open-mindedness from both parties. This is not always the case. When we know the other party is not interested in compromise, it’s probably futile to attempt to resolve the divorce without the court’s interference.
