Every lawyer at Gelman & Associates is prepared and experienced when it comes to assisting clients with all matters related to family law. In addition, we have a number of lawyers who are specifically trained and certified to practice Collaborative Family Law.

The Collaborative Family Law Process

Divorce often conjures up images of nasty disputes between both parties. The Collaborative process, however, is a team approach to resolving legal issues.  Both spouses each engage a collaboratively trained lawyer and work together through a series of four-way meetings to arrive at a mutually satisfactory Separation Agreement.

Promoting constructive dialogue between couples in order to achieve their desired outcomes is a key reason that the Collaborative practice has been gaining traction over the past several years.

It’s not surprising. Working together stands in sharp contrast to contested divorces which are public, time consuming, and much more expensive.
