Keep Family Law Matters In The Family Through Mediation Or Collaborative Law

Regardless of your different viewpoints on what is right and fair, you and the other party in your family law case – your spouse or your child’s other parent –  know your personal circumstances better than anyone else. The two of you are in the best position to reach solutions for a reasonable future.

Mediation or collaborative law processes allow you to choose your own path to resolution. The Law Office of Amy K. Butler is a valuable resource ready to guide you along a less rocky road to divorce or a child custody arrangement. I am family law attorney Amy K. Butler, an advocate and adviser focused sincerely on my clients’ well-being and desirable outcomes.

About Mediation

In mediation, you and the other person will arrive at decisions with the help of a neutral mediator. Each of you may be represented by a lawyer through the process. Family matters will remain private. The two of you can devise your schedule for mediation sessions. You will not be confined to a court’s calendar. Once you reach an agreement on the terms of your divorce or custody matter, a final version will be presented to a family law court and translate to your divorce decree or child custody order.

I am qualified to serve as your mediator. Alternatively, I can represent you in mediation conducted by an outside mediator. You can count on me to advise you in your best interests.

About Collaborative Law

Like mediation, a collaborative law process takes place outside of court, but without a mediator. You and your attorney will meet with your spouse (or the other parent) and their attorney. As you work through specific issues, you may bring in experts, such as a financial planner and a child psychologist, who will present the two of you with guidance to inform your joint decisions. If either of you decides not to cooperate, you will need to start fresh with new lawyers. This understanding helps keep both sides motivated to do the hard work of reaching agreements.
