Even emotionally charged and highly contested disputes can be resolved in a collaborative setting. It is possible for a separating couple to unite in making important decisions regarding their future and the future of their children. Collaborative law provides an open, honest and respectful dialog in a private setting to discuss issues and resolve arguments.
At Nunn Vhan & Lang, PLLC., we help Washington residents take control of their post-divorce future instead of putting important, life-lasting matters in the hands of a judge.
Dedicated and Diligent Everett and Lynnwood Collaborative Divorce Lawyers
In the collaborative law process, the best interests of your children come first and foremost. We understand that emotional matters exist in a marriage or domestic partnership ending in divorce or separation. The collaborative process provides a team to help you work through the emotional issues involving children and financial aspects of the separation. The collaborative process employs neutral professionals to help the process move forward, to include a parenting coach, financial specialist and/or a child specialist depending upon the facts and needs of each case.
Ground rules are set before proceedings begin. Each side agrees to proceed outside of court, in good faith, employing common courtesy and open-mindedness. Information will be freely and fully disclosed. Complaints take the form of neutral requests and laying blame on the other spouse because of past behavior is discouraged. At all times, the future well-being of all parties are both observed and respected.
From there, divorce-related matters involving child custody, child support and property division are negotiated. Successful completion will result in a legally binding agreement that serves the needs of the parents and the best interests of the children, done without court intervention.
