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 skill and achievements in divorce and custody matters, among others. We have 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 non-adversarial alternative to litigation.
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 other professional, a child specialist or psychologist, or a financial planning specialist.
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 towards a positive resolution. We are dedicated to finding the most appropriate solution for you and your family.We can discuss whether collaborative law is right for you.
