You may be seeking to avoid the emotional and financial stress often accompanying a litigated divorce but do not feel 100% comfortable without an attorney present during your negotiations. Jessica is available to be your collaborative attorney in a non-adversarial process that prioritizes mutual respect, honesty, and self-determination. With a commitment to stay out of court and communicate openly, fair agreements are reached.
The collaborative divorce process takes an interdisciplinary approach, acknowledging that divorce is multifaceted, and in addition to attorneys, a successful divorce may also require financial planners, mental health professionals or child specialists. The collaborative divorce model incorporates such other professionals and provides a safe venue to negotiate a divorce settlement without the threat of court.
The collaborative process is also well-suited for generating other types of legal agreements, such as pre-nuptials and co-parenting agreements. If you need to reach mutual understanding with someone, while also preserving the relationship, the collaborative model may be a good fit.
