Taking the Right Approach to your case

Our firm is committed to help you from the start to truly understand your options and choose the path best suited for your family.

Litigation: We are well-equipped to handle your matter should you require aggressive litigation, but will never encourage needless litigation just to drive up attorneys fees.  Litigation is most often an extremely expensive, time-consuming and stressful process, but unfortunately, it is sometimes necessary.  If so, we are prepared to draft your pleadings, represent you in a motion practice, court conferences and hearings, and ultimately to take your case to trial.

Collaborative divorce: In this form of alternative dispute resolution, the parties may each be represented by individual counsel, but are committed to resolving the matter primarily outside of court, to save both time and money.  If you choose this path, we are able to conduct settlement negotiations, as well as to prepare all necessary documents that the court would require to process an uncontested divorce.

Mediation: This is another form of alternative dispute resolution, where the parties work together with a neutral mediator to negotiate a resolution that works best for them.  Not only is this a more cost-effective option, but it is also particularly effective because both parties have a direct say in the outcome and will be able to craft better solutions for their families moving forward.  Our firm is unique in that we are able to provide complete mediation services - both a mediator to help you reach settlement terms, and then also the experienced attorney to draft the necessary paperwork in order to finalize your divorce.

For more information, and to better understand your options, call today to schedule a free consultation with attorney Jacqueline M. Caputo.  The most critical point in a divorce is at the start - in choosing the right method for you, so that you have no regrets and are able to move on in a positive direction.
