Ending a marriage through contested or uncontested divorce is difficult. Decisions made by moms and dads, husbands and wives during the divorce process have long-lasting effects on their children, their extended families, and future generations. Our goal is to advocate for you and most importantly, work compassionately with the whole family to achieve a harmonious ending, if at all possible.
If children are involved, we will help work out a child custody arrangement, get the process of child support agreement and payments into action, and assist in the development of a parenting plan, if desired.
What is Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR)?
If you and your spouse choose to keep your divorce proceeding private and away from the court, Jim Holliman works with you through voluntary mediation known as Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) sometimes referred to as collaborative divorce. During this process, both you and your spouse will meet with a neutral mediator to help resolve issues by bringing both parties to an agreement. With ADR, there is complete disclosure and no litigation between the parties. Many individuals prefer this method as it tends to be faster, less costly and produces a more amicable result.
