Developing your divorce strategy and reaching your goals
We develop a comprehensive strategy for reaching your goals regarding all aspects of your dissolution, including:
Based on that strategy, we accomplish your objectives by taking decisive steps, which may include conducting discovery, taking depositions, filing motions with the court and does include exchanging financial information and investigating the facts.
We act as mediators or as representatives in the collaborative law processes
Mediation and collaborative law are techniques designed to help couples agree on the terms of their divorce settlement. Alan R. Silverman has the training and experience to mediate your case. We do not represent either party. Instead, we are neutral facilitators helping you and your spouse recognize your common goals and reach equitable compromises for issues in dispute.
Alternatively, if you choose to not proceed with mediation or collaborative law, we may be retained to represent you in the traditional legal process for a marital dissolution. We are zealous advocates whose objective is to obtain the most beneficial resolution for you, whether in court or in privately negotiating with the other spouse or that spouse’s attorney.
When litigation is a better option
We settle most cases through mediation or collaborative law methods or when negotiating directly with the other spouse or that spouse’s attorney. And, we advise you when litigation is the appropriate means for obtaining an equitable outcome. For example, engaging in negotiations may be impractical or even dangerous in the following situations:
- Contentious child visitation and custody disputes, especially where you suspect deliberate parental alienation.
- Complex divorce involving disputed marital property
- History of domestic violence or an active order of protection
- Substance abuse issues that may require court-ordered drug or alcohol testing
- Psychological and mental health matters that interfere with the negotiation process or are the basis of a child custody issue
