Highly Trained and Experienced Collaborative Law Attorneys
Different families have different needs when they are going through a divorce. The lawyers of Rittgers & Rittgers understand this. We will treat your case as it should be treated: personally and with great care. We do not apply a one-size-fits-all mentality. We take the time to get to know your needs and work with you to determine the best strategy to meet them.
What Is Collaborative Law?
One of the many methods we can use is collaborative law. This is a method of alternative dispute resolution (ADR) that allows the two parties to work together, along with their lawyers, to build a resolution. In divorce cases, this model allows for creative solutions to matters related to child custody and support, property division, and more. It puts the power and control into your hands, allowing you to make the important decisions that will impact your life, rather than allowing a judge to do it.
Making It Work
Family law mediation and collaborative techniques tend to build strong communication between parties. The collaborative relationship that is created has a strong impact on the children involved, saving them from the emotional conflict that invariably arises when divorce matters go through the court system. When a result is reached through collaboration, it often leads to an arrangement that you and your former spouse can adhere to. It can reduce conflict and produce a better future for everyone involved.
The key to effective representation is that we take the time to learn about your needs and determine if a collaborative law approach is best for you and your family. We are dedicated to using whatever method is most effective in meeting your goals. Rather than forcing our approach onto you, we maintain the flexibility and skill to always do what is best for you.
