Collaborative Divorce

We Help You Resolve Divorce Disputes through a Collaborative Approach
“As a family lawyer with years of litigation experience and a professional mediator with a passion to help families navigate the divorce process without court intervention, I am thrilled to finally, through collaborative law, be able to merge my litigation and mediation experience to benefit divorcing couples during the most difficult moments of their lives.” ~ Alla Roytberg

If you are involved in a divorce or matrimonial dispute and you want to resolve your differences without the emotional and financial costs of the traditional divorce process, you may want to consider the collaborative approach to divorce. Do you wish to maintain an amicable relationship with your ex-spouse, but yet feel uncomfortable negotiating the terms of your separation or divorce without a lawyer on your side? Do you prefer to stay out of court to spare your children, decrease financial burden, avoid publicity or maintain privacy and discretion? Do you want to be directly involved in making decisions that affect you and your children?

The Collaborative Approach to Divorce
Collaborative Divorce offers a non-adversarial, respectful approach to divorce and separation that does not involve courts. In the collaborative law approach to divorce, the parties agree to resolve all disputes regarding child custody and visitation, child support, alimony or spousal support and property distribution without the intervention of the court. In fact, the parties and their attorneys sign a pledge to work out an agreement without going to court. Neutral financial and mental health professionals help spouses analyze their needs and interests, facilitate communication, address parenting concerns and evaluate assets, while each party’s collaborative attorney provides legal advice and helps advocate for the most workable solution on each issue. If a settlement cannot be achieved, collaborative attorneys must withdraw from representation and parties must hire new lawyers if they need to go to court. This withdrawal pledge is the key element which provides an often needed incentive to settle and differentiates collaborative divorce from traditional pre-court negotiation. The result of the collaborative process is a comprehensive agreement on all issues designed by the parties and their experienced team of collaborative professionals.
