Due to the highly emotional and sensitive nature of family law matters that involve a divorce, our firm can be trusted to lead you through alternative dispute resolution methods such as negotiation or mediation. These methods are used commonly and are well known for providing a cost- and time-efficient way for uncooperative couples to achieve positive outcomes. For former spouses who are having trouble reaching decisions on their divorce-related matters, mediation can be a great way to talk things out in a non-confrontational manner.
