Providing You With Alternative Dispute Resolution Options During Your Divorce
At the Law Office of Chandra E. Miller, I am trained in alternative dispute resolution options. These options provide divorcing couples ways to amicably settle issues involved in their divorces. The two most common ways a couple can end their marriage on a friendly and private basis are mediation and collaboration.
What Is Mediation?
During the mediation process, a neutral party helps the divorcing spouses listen to each other and helps them make their own decisions regarding their divorce. The mediator does not make decisions but can provide general legal guidance. This is why it is important to hire a mediator who is skilled with issues of family law and divorce.
What Is Collaborative Divorce?
Collaborative practice is a transparent process, which keeps both spouses in control. A collaboration team is assembled to guide each party — including the children — through the process. Each spouse has his and her own attorney but the spouses make the decisions.
This practice supports a respectful relationship between the spouses, a real benefit for the entire family, especially when children are involved.
