At Pitler Family Law & Mediation, P.C., we focus on helping families through the difficulty of divorce. We understand there is no such thing as an “easy divorce.” Even when parties have already decided how to divide their assets or have limited assets, the experience of a divorce can be very difficult. Therefore, it is very important to hire an experienced attorney who will work with you to insure that you obtain a settlement that is in the best interests of you and your children.
We have helped hundreds of clients resolve their family law issues and have learned that every client and every case is unique. We will take the time to listen to your problem, answer your questions, discuss the legal process and work with you to develop goals to help you reach a satisfactory result.
Through our experience, we have learned that parties are much happier when their divorce is resolved amicably. In order to provide the best alternatives for our clients, we has been certified in Collaborative Divorce Practice and is a court-approved mediator.
Amicable Divorce Solutions
99% of divorce cases settle without a trial. Some settle at the kitchen table, some at mediation and some on the day of trial. But they settle. So why should you hire an attorney who is preparing for a trial that will never take place?
The divorce system works for everyone except you and your family. The system works for the courts because it moves cases along toward completion. The system works for attorneys because they are able to bill significant amounts of money shepherding their clients through a system that is fairly predictable. The system works for everyone, except three groups of people: Mothers, Fathers and Children.
In the divorce litigation system, emotionally charged spouses hire lawyers to argue important family matters, before judges, who will listen to 10-15 minutes of arguing by the attorneys, then make a decision that impacts the entire family.
Judges are the first to admit that they should not be deciding who receives the marital home and how your assets are divided. Friend of the Court Referees should not be telling you how to raise your children.
You should be making the decisions regarding your children, your house, assets, and (unfortunately) debt, and you should be dictating the type of process used.
Every divorcing couple should have a voice in every stage of the case and control the pace, the agenda and the outcomes. When you select a Collaborative Divorce, Mediation or a One Lawyer Divorce, you will have control over your divorce and your life. See if you are a good match for an uncontested divorce.
