Few Other Problems Can Be As Stressful As Divorce
Going through a divorce is one of the most difficult and stressful things a person can do. At the Law Offices of Maribeth Blessing, LLC, we are dedicated to helping people throughout Pennsylvania get through the process and start rebuilding their lives and their families.
Providing Comprehensive Representation During Divorce
Many issues need to be resolved during divorce — it is usually not just a matter of dissolving the marriage. Many other decisions must be made when one household becomes two. Our law firm assists with the entire process, from dividing property and protecting assets, such as businesses, to alimony and child custody issues.
We also develop marital agreements for same-sex couples. These agreements dictate how property is to be divided in the event the relationship ends.
There Are Ways To Reduce The Stress
We believe people should not add to the stress of divorce by using the courtroom to resolve their differences — unless absolutely necessary. We are advocates of alternative dispute resolution (ADR) processes, like mediation and collaborative law, that are usually faster, less adversarial and less expensive, leaving people in a better position to move forward with life.
Alternative Paths To Divorce: Arbitration, Mediation And Collaborative Law
Our founding attorney, Maribeth Blessing, is a trained mediator and a member of Collaborative Family Law Affiliates, the International Academy of Collaborative Professionals, and the Association of Family and Conciliation Courts. Our clients also benefit from her experience representing parties in arbitration and serving as the chosen arbitrator for other family law cases.
Whenever possible, we urge clients to use collaborative law to arrive at mutually agreeable divorce and custody settlements and settle issues of property division. This process has been shown to be less adversarial, less stressful and usually less costly. The focus is on resolving differences together with the support of attorneys for both parties, and the ability to utilize mutually selected experts when necessary.
Because of its positive focus, collaborative divorce is particularly effective for parents who hope to be able to continue to work together to raise their children after divorce. We also offer mediation and arbitration through our secondary practice, Maribeth Blessing Mediation & Arbitration, LLC.
Some divorces are uncomplicated and even amicable. The parties have few if any disagreements and just wish to dissolve their marriage. In amicable and uncontested divorce matters, our law firm will charge a flat fee rather than an hourly rate. Clients know exactly how much their divorce will cost at the outset.
