What Are Our Options If We Don’t Want To Go To Court?

These days, many couples realize that while their marriage is ending, that doesn’t mean they need to go to war with one another.

Through processes like Collaborative Divorce, you and your spouse can retain control of the process, rather than letting a judge make decisions about your family.

Collaborative Divorce is designed to be less adversarial than traditional divorce, and is handled over the course of a series of face to face meetings, where both spouses are represented by their collaborative attorneys and a negotiated agenda sets the ground rules for the day’s discussions.

As with any other divorce, the parties will address the issues of divorce, including financial arrangements, division of assets, child custody and support, and more.

A collaborative divorce may include specialists in finance, representatives for your children, and other professionals who can help create a fair, solutions-focused process that gives you a divorce that suits your needs.

At Zelenitz, Shapiro & D’Agostino, our attorneys are trained in Collaborative Law, and can help you have a productive, negotiated divorce without the need to go to court.
