If you and your spouse are amenable to negotiation, Dorene Kuffer can help as a collaborative divorce expert. In order to engage in a collaborative divorce, you must work with a divorce lawyer trained in collaborative law. Dorene Kuffer is a trained collaborative lawyer who has successfully represented many clients in proceedings that were resolved respectfully and with dignity.
What is the Collaborative Divorce Process?
In collaborative divorce, your family disputes are resolved by working with two trained collaborative attorneys. Other neutral professionals, such as forensic accountants and divorce coaches are engaged to fairly sort out assets and liabilities or help with the emotional stresses that separation and divorce often brings. With the assistance of the entire team of collaborative experts, negotiating issues like child custody, child support, alimony and property division, becomes more dignified, and less contentious and focused on your needs.
The professionals on the collaborative team are interested in positive outcomes for you both – not in combative litigation. Ultimately, you have more control over the outcome because the case lies in your hands, not a judge or other court appointed individuals.
Another plus to collaborative divorce is that it protects the children from being “caught in the middle” and sets a positive example for them on ways to work through a problem without engaging in adversarial actions. Since the Law Office of Dorene A. Kuffer is a child-centered law firm, Dorene Kuffer helps to keep you focused on your child’s best interests throughout the collaborative divorce process.
