Keep Relationships Healthy And Control Your Outcome

Not every divorce case needs to go before a judge. You have the option to resolve a divorce and other family matters through alternative dispute resolution (ADR) such as mediation, arbitration and collaborative law. These methods facilitate communication between the parties. They often result in less animosity and emotional scarring, which can create a healthier environment when there are children involved.

At Ramatowski & Schwartz, our goal is to use ADR to help our clients have a strong hand in fashioning their own solutions and remedies. Our attorneys are available to counsel you about all the ADR processes and to help you determine the options that would work best for your family. We will remain by your side throughout the process.

There Are More Options For Resolving Family Issues Than Ever Before

ADR offers several methods by which you can resolve legal matters. These include:

  • Mediation: In mediation, each party sits down with their counsel and a neutral mediator to reach a mutually satisfactory agreement.
  • Collaboration: Collaborative law allows spouses to work with professionals trained in collaboration to avoid a court trial.
  • Arbitration: Arbitration is similar to a trial in that an arbitrator issues a final, binding decision. However, arbitration remains private.

We can sit down with you to determine which method of ADR is best for you. Then, we can create a strategy to help you reach your goals by whichever method necessary.

Skilled Litigators When Necessary

Our knowledge and experience allow us to function very effectively as negotiators, but we are ready to represent you should your case move into court. Litigation experience and familiarity with how judges tend to decide issues give us a full understanding of what constitutes a fair resolution of any contested issue. We know the pros and cons of the legal arguments that adversaries are likely to pursue, which allows us to advise our clients as to whether they should bring their case to court.
