You Do Not Have To Follow Their Rules In Divorce


Most people think of divorce litigation as a game with a certain set of rules. If you do not want to follow those rules, you are out of luck. However, the truth is that you can make up your own rules. You do not have to go to battle with your spouse. You do not have to go to court to fight things out. There is an alternative, and an attorney can help you make it work.

At Block Legal Services in Brookfield, I take pride in helping people achieve their goals in divorce without having to go through the traditional divorce process. I start by listening to you, learning about your goals, and determining the best way to move forward.

Is Collaborative Divorce Right For You?

Collaborative divorce is a powerful alternative to traditional divorce litigation. It involves a team of specialized professionals that each help in their small area of expertise. This allows for excellent education and guidance in all areas of the divorce process in a way that is more efficient and effective than is available in divorce litigation. The team works to guide the parties through the separation and educate the parties about how life will be different after divorce.

Ultimately, collaborative divorce allows the spouses to work together to reach amicable resolutions without requiring courtroom intervention. Although this approach can be helpful in any divorce, the results are especially meaningful when there are children involved. Children often suffer the most from the conflict that divorce litigation causes, and the collaborative process has been shown to put children through less stress.

However, the collaborative process might not be right for your circumstances. In those cases, the same spirit and intent can be used to help you pursue the results you need.
