Alternative Dispute Resolution Options
There is more than one way to resolve a family law dispute. We help people resolve family law disputes and attempt to limit court time and litigation, through skilled negotiation and alternative dispute resolution (ADR) options such as mediation and collaborative law.
Ms. Vanderwoude is a trained family law mediator and collaborative law attorney, allowing her to offer clients a versatile array of options for resolving family law disputes regarding divorce, property division, child custody and other sensitive matters.
Advantages Of Mediation
In the mediation process, a third-party neutral evaluator hears both sides of a legal dispute and guides the parties toward a resolution they can both live with. Mediation offers many advantages. It is often faster and less expensive than a litigated divorce, and it puts more control in the hands of the divorcing parties. Also, it typically creates less acrimony than traditional litigation.
Robbin D. Vanderwoude is a neutral evaluator who has successfully guided many clients to amicable, cost-effective resolutions of their family law disputes.
In a collaborative divorce, both parties sign an agreement that they will not go to court. The collaborative process often involves neutral experts in fields such as finance and child psychology. With the guidance of these experts, the parties work to find common ground in areas of disagreement.
