Easing You Through Collaborative And Uncontested Divorce
Divorce does not have to be an adversarial process. More and more couples are turning toward alternative solutions such as collaborative divorce or mediation to save time, money and stress.
Attorney Monika Blacha founded Blacha Law Office, LLC, with the goal of helping clients find solutions to serious family issues. Our firm uses alternative dispute resolution techniques to help clients reach agreement on issues such as:
- Child custody, visitation and support
- Division of marital property and debts
- Spousal maintenance
If you are going through a divorce in which you and your former partner do not plan to contest the major issues involved, we can assist you with a calm, respectful uncontested divorce.
What Are The Benefits To Uncontested Divorce?
The traditional adversarial approach to divorce can add to cost, stress and make it harder to find a compromise that meets the needs of both parties. Through collaborative law or mediation, you can:
- Preserve amicable relations with your ex
- Keep the divorce arrangement private
- Minimize expenses
- Expedite the divorce process
- Avoid a stressful trial
As a mediator with more than 20 years of experience, Ms. Blacha can bring dignity, respect and predictability to a legal process that is often stressful, costly and unpredictable. We help you craft unique and collaborative solutions that meet your goals.
