Even outside of divorce litigation, couples may still find difficulty negotiating the often-complex details of the divorce, and that’s where the Law Offices of Leon F. Bennett will help guide you through the Collaborative-Mediation process. Collaborative-Mediation is like Divorce Meditation, but Collaborative-Mediation requires both parties be represented by an mediator attorney, whereas mediation does not. Thus, the Collaborative-Mediation process is not presided over by a third-party Mediator.
In the Collaborative-Mediation process, the representing attorneys help guide the couple through some of the more complex issues that the spouses are finding difficult to agree upon. By choosing collaboration, clients allow attorneys to assist them in resolving conflict by using cooperative techniques and respectful negotiation rather than adversarial strategies and costly litigation. If need be, our attorneys will retain experts in any necessary field from accountants to child custody specialists and psychologists, who will support your goals.
Both parties remain in control over the issues with seasoned attorneys present to help navigate the murkier waters. Most importantly, you and your former spouse will truly control the outcome instead of leaving your fate in the hands of a judge when it comes to issues like spousal and child support. The Law Offices of Leon F. Bennett will work with you to achieve your specific goals in the Collaborative-Mediation process.
