The Collaborative Approach Will Make Sense Now — And In Your Future

We all seem to know someone who suffered the expense and emotional turmoil of an ugly divorce. In an effort to unplug the courts from needless trials, the State of Washington passed the Uniform Collaborative Law Act,* which encourages divorcing spouses to submit their litigation to a collaborative process such as mediation or another form of alternative dispute resolution. Working with their attorneys, parties are expected to try their best to come to terms over contested issues such as child custody and parenting time, marital property settlements and spousal support. As a proud member of the International Association of Collaborative Professionals, I have seen firsthand how efficient and cost-effective a negotiated settlement can be. Perhaps more important, statistics indicate that couples who settle their disputes through mutual mediation and respect are far more likely to remain satisfied with their final divorce judgment over the years.

As A Certified Assistant Scuba Instructor, I Know To Look Beneath The Surface
