Negotiation: a tool for cooperation
Children are best served when parents maintain a cordial relationship. Through the process of negotiation, parents can set aside enmity and agree on key points concerning their children. Negotiation can be a highly effective tool, helping you preserve your children’s well-being and the stability of their lives during the turbulent process of divorce. The predictability of a negotiated settlement reduces the stress of child custody conflicts and puts important child-rearing decisions in your hands, rather than in the hands of the court. We skillfully guide negotiations towards a settlement that protects your child’s best interests and your parental rights. We can also represent you through mediation, to be sure that your interests are adequately protected.
By your side in litigation
Litigation may be necessary to protect your children’s best interests. If negotiations fail or the other parent is a danger to your child’s well-being, the courtroom provides an essential forum for establishing your parental rights. The uncertainty of litigation can add to the stress and upheaval of this time. But with an experienced family law attorney by your side, you can feel confident that your children will be protected and your parental rights remain secure.
