Knowledgeable Georgia Law Firm Assists Clients in Collaborative Divorces

Collaborative Law

Skillful Alpharetta attorney helps divorcing clients settle differences out of court

Divorce does not have to take place in a contentious litigation environment. Instead, a knowledgeable law firm can assist you in ending your marriage in a way that is typically quicker, more amicable and less expensive than a traditional divorce. For over 25 years, Faulhaber Family Law, LLC in Alpharetta, Georgia has represented spouses in Fulton County and surrounding areas in divorce matters, including collaborative divorce. In basic terms, this process involves negotiating a settlement outside the courtroom with the help of skilled legal counsel who is experienced with the collaborative law process.

Dedicated lawyer advises clients on choosing a collaborative divorce

While collaborative divorce is an ideal option for some splitting couples, it may not be right for everyone. Most importantly, divorcing spouses must be committed to settling their divorce outside of court and willing to cooperate with each other in a good faith effort to arrive at the best possible solution. If children are involved, collaborative divorce can soften the emotional impact on them because it typically serves to reduce fighting and conflict between parents. I will help you understand whether collaborative divorce is right for you based on your unique circumstances, and if it is, represent your interests throughout the process.

Committed counselor guides clients through collaborative divorce steps

When accomplished properly, the collaborative divorce process provides a streamlined solution to ending a marriage. Here is a basic breakdown of how the process works:

  • Each spouse engages the assistance of a family law attorney who is knowledgeable about Georgia’s collaborative divorce legal process.
  • Both spouses sign a Collaborative Law Participation Agreement, which lays out rules that must be followed and specifies that, should the collaborative process fail, both parties must find new legal representation to advocate for them in court.
  • The spouses, with their attorneys, hold meetings together to discuss divorce terms and resolve issues.
  • If an agreement is reached, the divorce settlement will be drawn up and filed in court.
  • A judge reviews and approves the settlement to make it final.

Collaborative divorce may also involve neutral experts who are brought in to offer their professional insight into different areas, such as therapists, financial planners, accountants and others. My experienced law firm will counsel you through the entire collaborative divorce process, working to achieve the best result for you and your family.
