Avoid Divorce Court & Litigation:
Divorce Mediation and Collaborative Divorce
Most people contemplating divorce do not want to go to trial in a divorce court to resolve issues in their personal life. Most cases can be resolved without a trial. Attorney Martin is committed to resolving cases without divorce court intervention through alternative dispute resolution methods and offers her clients two such non-adversarial approaches: mediated and collaborative divorce. Both methods minimize the negative economic, social and emotional consequences of protracted litigation on the clients and their family. And both methods are conducive to helping the clients maintain their dignity and giving the clients control over the process. She believes that avoiding litigation in divorce court and settling family law cases in a non-adversarial manner is the best option for parties facing such a life-changing event.
Both methods also work best when a psychologist/coach, trained in the mediation/collaborative process, is included in the mediation/collaborative process. After representing divorce clients for over 30 years, Attorney Martin is convinced that there are two key elements in a family law dispute: the legal element and the emotional element. It is often the emotional element that creates more stress for the couple and impedes the negotiation process.
If you are preparing to end your marriage, and you have questions about which option is best for you, it is important to speak with an experienced divorce attorney:
