The traditional litigated divorce is a traumatic, costly, antiquated and ineffective way addressing the end of a relationship. The court system focuses on dismantling the past, finding fault and encouraging resentment by declaring one spouse the winner and the other spouse the loser in a public battle. Everyone loses, especially children. The Collaborative Divorce process empowers you to privately manage and resolve your family conflict outside of the court process with the guidance of a skilled team of accredited collaborative professionals. In the Collaborative Divorce Process, each spouse is represented by a collaboratively trained lawyer who is fully committed to a problem-solving approach. Through a series of private meetings, you, your spouse, your lawyers, a neutral mental health professional and financial expert, as needed, work together to explore your needs, interests and priorities and those of your children, while acknowledging and managing the inherent stress of divorce and to support and promote a lasting, balanced resolution.
Irene facilitates and guides private resolutions for parties in a confidential, problem-solving environment. This alternative dispute resolution process is effective for resolving family law disputes before lawsuits are filed or while litigation is in progress to settle the disputes and avoid the uncertain consequences of a judge's ruling.
