All. Through successful negotiation, you can resolve your divorce case on your own terms. Even when a full resolution is not obtained, often parties can resolve some conflicts, thus limiting the extent of the litigation. At a minimum, there is a wealth of information to obtain about the other side’s position and a benefit to ascertaining the strength of your case. Our attorneys, Donna Buttler and Ann Newman, always look for a way to resolve a case by negotiation.
Can Negotiation Limit the Cost of a Divorce?Jim Fuhrmann2020-01-27T19:42:48-05:00
Absolutely. The least expensive resolution process is often negotiation. Moreover, when parties agree to the final outcome, negotiation distinctly limits disputes and more costly litigation after the final judgment.
Is Preparation Important to Divorce Negotiation or is It All Tactical?Jim Fuhrmann2020-01-28T15:52:27-05:00
Preparation is an essential component of any negotiation. Tactics exist, but the more knowledgeable attorney can distinguish between hype and compelling arguments. At our firm, our attorneys will focus on presenting your case in a way that is compelling to the other parties involved. By being fully prepared, we can drive the negotiation in your direction while still being flexible to react to new information and unexpected twists.

The collaborative divorce process is a model of negotiation that emphasizes respect and privacy of the divorcing couple. This process differs from mediation in that each client is represented by a lawyer to serve as his or her advocate throughout the negotiation. Often, other professionals, such as psychologists, child experts and financial planners are also involved in the process.
