Carlsbad, CA Collaborative Divorce Attorneys Reach Equitable Resolutions
Guiding clients toward just settlements in the San Diego area
The collaborative divorce technique is an alternative method for resolving dissolution issues. It allows a couple to reach an agreement in a calm, cooperative and non-adversarial environment. The focus of collaborative law is for both parties and their attorneys to make a commitment to the settlement process through cooperation.
Established in 1993, Silverman & Silverman, Attorneys at Law concentrates exclusively on family law issues. Our goal is to obtain the best possible terms in your divorce in the most efficient and least stressful manner. If it is right for your circumstances, we recommend the collaborative method for reaching a divorce settlement.
Our commitment to the collaborative law process
Our team has trained extensively in mediation and collaborative methods, including advanced training in collaboration, and extensive mediation and dispute resolution training at Pepperdine University School of Law, Strauss Institute for Dispute Resolution. Because we also act as divorce mediators, we are skilled in finding common grounds and encouraging separating couples to cooperate in reaching an agreement. In addition, attorney Alan Silverman holds a doctorate in psychology and enjoyed a 15-year career as a family therapist and child psychologist before attending law school.
During our 20 years of family law practice, our family lawyers in San Diego have experienced the advantages of the collaborative method with our clients and are committed to engaging in this effective model when they can benefit by:
- Reducing costs of the divorce
- Finalizing the divorce more efficiently
- Creating a more amicable, diplomatic environment
- Taking control over the decision-making process
- Being committed to cooperation when children are involved
- Reaching an agreement about division of marital assets that is fair and acceptable to both spouses
The collaborative process
During your collaborative divorce, we cooperate with your spouse's attorney and your spouse to devise equitable settlement terms that are in your children's best interests and are fair to both of you. Our teams share documents with each other and engage in open discussions geared toward reaching a mutually beneficial agreement. If evaluations or assessments are necessary, an agreement is made to retain neutral experts to provide impartial evaluations of the issues. You might also receive assistance from coaches who can help you cope with the anxiety related to child custody and visitation matters.
