HOW ALTERNATIVE DIVORCE WORKS?
This is your family and your divorce
We offer three process options allowing divorcing couple to transform their family with
dignity and remain in control of their future parental and financial relationships.
A win-win scenario is always within reach.
From the outset, the collaborative approach aligns a separating couple’s interests in a positive and empowering process of restructuring from a nuclear to a bi-nuclear family through respectful communication and out of the box thinking, while simultaneously preserving the dignity and privacy of the relationship.
Private, expedient and mutually beneficial.
Not all roads lead to trial.

Alternative Divorce vs. Traditional Litigation
The alternative divorce resolution processes of collaborative divorce, mediation, and negotiated settlement significantly reduce the time, expense, and heartache typically associated with divorce. Unlike litigation which results in a “win/lose” scenario, non-adversarial process options result in a “win/win” scenario. A traditional divorce is a long and monotonous process which involves lengthy court proceedings and frequent meetings with (often expensive) attorneys. ADR, or “Alternative Divorce Resolution” makes the divorce process less stressful and often, more cost-effective.
The three types of ADR: mediation, negotiated settlement, and collaborative divorce, offer healthier and less toxic alternatives to the traditional divorce proceedings. By cooperating with your spouse and working to find beneficial alternatives to your current situation, the divorce can feel more like the creation of a new beginning than an ending.
Divorce is not about destruction.
Our mission here at ADR Law is to spare families from the destructive forces of divorce litigation and help divorcing spouses maintain control of their futures. We believe that families in transition need support from various professionals working together to restructure and transform their lives. The inherent adversarial nature present in the court system today fails to provide that support or foster an atmosphere of compromise and healing during one of life’s most traumatic events.
It is far too often the case that “divorce” becomes synonymous with “destruction.” Fortunately, it doesn’t have to be that way: a divorcing spouse doesn’t have to be a warring spouse. Just because the relationship you once had with your spouse is changing doesn’t mean it must be completely destroyed in the process.
After decades of practicing matrimonial and family law in the litigation model, we concluded that litigation, in the context of divorce, is an unnecessarily divisive and destructive process which is harmful to the emotional and financial well-being of families and undermines the possibility of a positive future relationship between former spouses.
This insight, based on our extensive experience led to a mission: empower and assist couples
in transforming from a nuclear to bi-nuclear family in a cost-effective and time-efficient manner
with dignity and privacy.
We focus on helping divorcing couples restructure the financial and co-parenting aspects of the family, so that they can move forward in a positive direction with a strong foundation. Together, we get to the heart of underlying issues, develop realistic goals for the future, and formulate creative and functional solutions tailored to the needs of both the individual and the new bi-nuclear family.
To that end, we offer collaborative divorce, mediation, and negotiated settlement as healthy and positive alternatives to the adversarial and potentially destructive litigation process.
