Most Family Disputes Don't Belong In Court!

Your marriage, finances, and children are private family concerns. Far too many divorces and other family disputes end up in open court.

Courtroom litigation is a public, adversarial process that increases hostility, breaks down communication, and puts your private family concerns on display in open court. It doesn't have to be that way.

Mediation and collaborative law are private, respectful alternatives to courtroom litigation. With the help of a mediator or collaborative attorney, you can address important family concerns in a private setting where you — not a judge — control the process and work toward mutually agreeable solutions.

Or, you can prevent conflict before it starts by using a prenuptial agreement to make important financial decisions together, before your wedding.
