Working Together To Reach Family Law Solutions

The collaborative law process is a unique form of alternative dispute resolution which can be used in divorce and family law matters in Virginia. At DeFazio Bal, we are trusted in the local community for our skills and achievements in divorce and custody matters, among others. We have over 55 years of combined experience working to craft effective strategies for our clients. The collaborative divorce process may be the right choice for you if you wish to pursue a nonadversarial alternative to litigation.

Benefits Of Collaborative Law In Virginia

Collaborative law is similar to mediation as it can be handled out of court, but there are additional benefits involved. This process is handled by a team of professionals, including a Richmond family law attorney for each party, as well as a divorce coach or any other professional, a child specialist or psychologist, or a financial planning specialist.

A few of the benefits of the collaborative law process include:

  • A no court agreement signed by all parties.
  • Each professional is highly trained in the process.
  • Your interests will be represented and advocated for.

How Does The Collaborative Law Process Work?

In order to determine if collaborative law is right for you and your case, we take the time to educate you on the steps of the process. The spouses will first meet separately with their own counsel before the four-person meetings take place. Each meeting will be crafted to specifically address your goals and work toward a positive resolution. We are dedicated to finding the most appropriate solution for you and your family.
