Guidance From Trained Collaborative Law Attorneys

Even if you do not currently agree with your spouse on all the issues in your divorce proceedings, you do not have to have an acrimonious legal battle to resolve them. For some families, collaborative divorce is a way to separate spouses’ personal and legal lives without causing further damage to the relationships in the family.

Ulrichsen Rosen & Freed LLC features three partners who are qualified and trained in collaborative law. Our Mercer County collaborative law lawyers can help you resolve your child support and custody, property division and other issues through this or other alternative dispute resolution options. We serve clients in Pennington and surrounding areas of New Jersey, including Princeton.

Resolution Without Litigation

Collaborative Divorce is a respectful and flexible process to resolve family disputes without going to court. With a collaborative divorce, both parties enter into a written pledge to reach an agreement out of court and commit in writing to maintain a respectful process, to solve problems jointly, and to work to preserve the integrity of the family. The parties maintain control over the solution instead of having a judge make decisions for them. Collaborative attorneys represent their clients, but in an informal and non-adversarial manner. Information is exchanged cooperatively with the assistance of attorneys and, if necessary, other appropriate collaborative professionals. Collaborative divorce allows the parties to participate directly in creating fair solutions that effect the family’s priorities.

You may be a good candidate for collaborative law if you can:

  • Disclose all relevant information
  • Negotiate in good faith and work to resolve issues without threatening court intervention
  • Cooperate with the other party so that you can achieve a settlement that is in both your best interests

A successful collaborative divorce will enable you and your spouse to cooperate and focus on parenting and other post-divorce issues because you have not further damaged your relationships through a conflict-ridden court process.
