If separating couples have shared priorities or are able to work together to determine a path forward, there are a range of alternative dispute resolution options available including mediation or collaborative practice to help you begin a new, independent future.
Often couples disagree or cannot communicate to determine how to shape their future outside of court. In these instances, you'll need an experienced lawyer who will fiercely represent your interests on matters ranging from child custody to support.
