Serving Families At All Stages Of Life

Divorce Does Not Have To End Up In Court

Last updated on June 19, 2020

When you go through a divorce, if possible, you do not want a judge to make decisions about your life after your marriage ends. There are alternative dispute resolution methods (ADR) to help you make the decisions that work for your family, on your own terms. Giordano Law, PLC, can explain the benefits that come with ADR and how to use those benefits to your advantage.

Michele Giordano is a domestic relations mediator as well as a trained Collaborative Divorce lawyer. She understands how to use these methods to achieve a resolution instead of heading to court.

While each of these processes of dispute resolution has its own unique benefits, both help you maintain more control in making decisions. ADR provides the framework which can empower you and your spouse to determine together how to best divide your assets, rather than leaving it up to a judge to decide what is fair.

Michele also uses ADR to help you find ways to effectively co-parent your children, creating specialized custody and parenting time agreements that work for the family, while keeping the best interests of your children front and center.

A Different Way To Resolve Your Case

One ADR option that Michele is particularly passionate about is Collaborative Divorce. Like with mediation, the main objective of Collaborative Divorce is settling your case out of court using a team of specially-trained professionals to guide you. In addition to helping you retain control, this approach:

  • Allows for privacy and discretion
  • Allows for agreements focused on the needs of you as individuals and as a family in transition
  • Allows for flexibility and pacing that is suited to your case
  • Allows you to address concerns without the repercussions that sometimes come with litigation

Michele can provide more resources about Collaborative Divorce and explain the benefits, as well as show you how to use it to bring a peaceful resolution to your divorce.
