Using Collaboration To Dissolve A Marriage
While many divorce cases require aggressive representation, we recognize that not every divorcing couple needs — much less desires — an adversarial approach to their divorce. At The Manely Firm, P.C., we recognize that alternative dispute resolution is often the best option for many of our clients.
Alternative Dispute Resolution — Helping You Understand Your Divorce Options
Since 1989, our family lawyers have been assisting individuals and families in finding the most effective and productive resolutions in their high-asset divorce cases in Georgia. While our divorce lawyers have the trial experience to tenaciously represent you in court, we can also help you understand the value of amicable negotiation in collaborative divorce and through mediation.
Collaborative divorce is sometimes an excellent alternative to traditional divorce for couples who want to work together and eliminate conflict throughout their divorce process.
How Can Collaboration Help You?
Collaborative law allows both parties to work together as a couple to design a divorce outside of the court system. Both parties will come together to create mutual agreements regarding the important issues that must be settled in divorce, like:
- Child custody and visitation — Get help establishing a parenting time plan that works for the entire family.
- Child support — Secure and enforce a child support order that ensures the child’s financial wellbeing.
- Division of marital assets and debt — Work toward an amicable and equitable division of assets and liabilities with help from our family lawyers.
- Spousal support/alimony — Work with your ex-spouse to make sure your finances won’t be in ruin after you divorce.
When you choose alternative dispute resolution, you will have the opportunity to work with a team of professionals, such as divorce coaches, financial analysts and child specialists, who will offer advice and help you create customized agreements specific to your family’s needs.
After you have come to mutual agreements with your spouse regarding your child or children, property and other matters, your collaborative divorce case will be presented in court where your agreements will be reviewed to ensure that the best interests of your child or children have been considered before it is finalized.
At The Manely Firm, P.C., we believe that taking a practical approach to our divorce cases allows our collaborative divorce lawyers to generate innovative solutions to meet our clients’ unique legal concerns.
