Two Lawyers Working Together

Dispute with dignity: You do not have to be overwhelmed by the family court process.

If you have never experienced family court before, it can be an intimidating experience. Typically, your case is scheduled along with 20 or more other cases. When your name is called, you have to announce your presence in a room full of strangers.

If you could not afford an attorney, you may be confused by the procedure and unsure if everything has been taken care of properly. The judge may have only 30 minutes or less to take testimony regarding any unresolved issues and cannot give you legal advice. Basically, whether or not you hire an attorney, family court can be nerve wracking. Even if you have been through a family law dispute in the past, you are aware of the stress, time, and costs to your family. Understanding your options through alternative dispute resolution can relieve you of the anxiety and expense of traditional litigation. 

Dispute With Dignity

How does private dispute management work?

You have the legal right to choose a private method for solving your case. We are passionate about empowering you. We educate you how you can take back some control to solve your family’s legal matter. We explain each step of the process along the way and make sure you understand exactly what is going on and what to expect next. We are here for you if you have any questions, and will make sure to be there until you have the final court papers you need.

Understanding Your Needs & Goals  

To get started, reserve your case evaluation. We will confirm a meeting time that works best for you. If you need us to contact the other party, we are happy to call them for you. If you both already agree, but need help working out the details or making it official . . . great. The evaluation will help us give you a fair estimate for your case. Most uncontested cases are resolved and completed within 8 hours of our family coaching services.

Not Exactly “Uncontested”?

Once we have a basic understanding of what each side is looking for, we will give you an honest estimate of the amount of time we believe your dispute needs. From there, we will confirm your agreement for our virtual or in-person session. Very often, you and the other person agree to share the cost 50/50.
