Collaborative Divorce

Collaborative divorce helps spouses who cannot work together to find solutions to their divorce disputes but still want to avoid the time and expense of a divorce trial. 

The goal of collaborative divorce is for the spouses to resolve their differences without going to trial. At the start of the process, both spouses sign a commitment to use collaboration and not take their case to court.

Our team and client meet separately to discuss goals and overall negotiation strategy. We then assemble with opposing counsel and the other spouse. Through a series of back-and-forth meetings, the spouses with guidance from their attorneys determine the terms of their divorce. No outcome is forced on either spouse. 

Should the collaborative process not yield results, the spouses retain their right to take the case to court. They must hire new legal representation. Their counsel during collaboration cannot represent them at trial. 

Divorce Mediation

Mediation is another way to settle divorce details without going to trial. Unlike collaborative divorce, couples using mediation do not have to be represented by legal counsel. Our Hopewell Junction divorce mediation attorney acts as a neutral third party who offers compromises and other suggestions for the spouses to consider. The mediator cannot provide legal advice. 

Amicable spouses willing to work together on their divorce agreement are good candidates for divorce mediation. Both spouses craft their terms. Compliance with the agreement is high because no spouse feels like the “winner” or “loser” in the process. Divorce agreements are typically reached after a few mediation sessions. 

Divorce Trial – Contested Divorce

The traditional avenue of taking a divorce to court remains an option in Hopewell Junction. For spouses who cannot or will not work together on their divorce, a trial might be the best route. Each spouse is represented by an attorney who argues on behalf of their client. After listening to all testimony and examining documentation and other evidence, a judge hands down the decision. A contested divorce takes longer than other divorce methods and requires specific legal steps, motions, and maneuvers.

Our trial attorneys have extensive time in court. We know how to present compelling arguments throughout the court process. If your case might go to trial, make sure you hire an attorney steeped in trial strategy.

High-Net-Worth Divorce

No matter the divorce method you use, high-net-worth divorces demand an attorney with experience in handling the aspects unique to these cases. 

High-net-worth cases often involve complicated business interests, real estate holdings, and investments. Dividing debt and assets is complex and must consider all other aspects of the dissolution, including child custody, child support, and spousal maintenance.

We also have a keen eye for noticing red flags that might indicate a spouse is dissipating or concealing assets.
