COLLABORATIVE LAW

Resolve legal issues without litigation


Dealing with family legal issues can be emotionally taxing and stressful in itself and often the stress escalates when your personal issues must be argued in a courtroom. Litigating family issues in a courtroom not only add stress, but also add time and money for both parties involved, often making disputes more contentious and bitter. Through collaborative law, divorcing couples can cooperate to resolve disputes without litigation and ensure that the needs of each party are met.

There are many benefits for parties who can resolve their issues through collaborative law, and Gena R. Larison can help you reach an agreement without litigating the issues in court.

THE BENEFITS OF COLLABORATIVE LAW

While collaborative law is not suitable in every circumstance, it is often advisable that parties cooperate in order to resolve their differences. Collaborative law has many benefits for both parties, including:

  • Ability to have control over the decision-making process and to arrive at solutions that fit the individual needs of the parties
  • Promotion of the best interests of any children involved in the process
  • Avoidance of court-imposed decisions over issues that impact your family, made by judges who do not fully understand your family structure
  • By reaching agreements collaboratively, parties are more likely to adhere to those agreements
  • Ability to save a great deal of time, money and stress by avoiding court

Alternative dispute resolutions, such as mediation and collaborative law, can help parties resolve issues related to property division, complex asset division, child custody, child support and spousal support. It can also help prepare for any modifications to these orders when life changes occur in the future.
