Settlement Negotiations

An Efficient Approach to Divorce and Family law

The vast majority of family cases are settled out of court. How you reach the settlement can be as critical as the terms of the settlement. Settlement negotiations is a face to face direct negotiation between you and your spouse. Settlement negotiation differs from litigation because it reduces the back and forth letter writing between lawyers and allows for more efficient and productive communication.

The benefit of settlement negotiations is that it could save you time and money. The downsides are that direct settlement negotiations do not include a formal commitment from the other party or attorney in the same way as the Collaborative Process, which has guidelines, statutes and rules that require the other side to do certain things.

Regardless of the method used to help you resolve their family matter, our goal is to help you make informed decisions so you can create a future after divorce that is beneficial for you and your and your family.
