When you visit our Doylestown, Pennsylvania law office for a free initial consultation, we will talk with you about your needs and help you find a plan that works. However, it is often impossible to tell what your needs will be until you start looking for a resolution. Some people anticipate a simple divorce only to find many issues on which they disagree, while others are surprised to find how well they can work together.
It is our job to help you choose the legal strategies that are right for you and your family. Dedicated to family law, we know how the law works and have seen how others in similar situations achieved successful outcomes. We strive to achieve the best possible results whether you decide to pursue litigation, mediation or collaborative law.
Family Law Litigation
In the United States, litigation has become the most commonly accepted way for couples to divorce. In family law litigation, each spouse hires an attorney. Spouses communicate through their attorneys in an attempt to resolve issues of child custody, child support, alimony and property division. Those that cannot be negotiated are decided by a judge in court.
If you are unable to work out important issues with your spouse, litigation may be an option for you. However, you will need a strong advocate for your rights. We will stand up for you in court to protect your interests effectively and efficiently.
Faster and more amicable than litigation, mediation will allow you to sit down with your spouse and a mediator to resolve major decisions in your divorce. As a trained mediator, attorney Elissa C. Goldberg will listen to your goals and guide you through the process without imposing her view. People who go through mediation are more likely to be pleased with the results and stick to their divorce plan.
A relatively new option, collaborative law allows you and your spouse to be represented by an attorney. Thus, you each have an advocate on your side. However, there is no looming threat of litigation. This lack of litigation really encourages people to negotiate. You may also consult with experienced professionals to lend advice regarding financial matters and child custody. Together, you can make a decision that is right for you, while still having an advocate on your side.
Every divorce is different and every family faces unique circumstances. It is important to find the strategy that works best for you. From our offices in Doylestown, Pennsylvania, we can help you do just that. Call 215-345-5259 or contact us online today to schedule a free initial consultation and start exploring your options.
