Family Law Options

There are three ways to resolve your family law issues: Collaboration, Mediation or Litigation. Collaboration and Mediation have the advantage over Litigation in having more control over the outcome versus handing control over to a judge. When the court makes a decision it may be one that both parties dislike.

In Collaboration, both parties have their own counsel and make a promise to resolve disputes without going to court. In Mediation, the parties work with a mediator to resolve their disputes, again not setting foot into a courtroom. In Litigation, the parties are unwilling or unable to reach an agreement so the judge has to make a decision for them.
