Choose Collaborative Law To Resolve Your Family Law Matters

At the Law Offices of Maribeth Blessing, LLC, we are committed to resolving family law problems as amicably as possible. We urge a client involved in a divorce or other family law dispute to consider using the collaborative law process.

Collaborative law is an alternative dispute resolution method that gets all parties thinking collaboratively to find solutions that benefit the entire family. The result? Less contention. Less stress. Less time. And less money.

How does it work? During the collaborative process, each spouse is represented by an attorney. But, rather than working against each other, all four people work together to find solutions to issues related to divorce, child custody and support, alimony, and other matters.

Benefits Of Collaborative Divorce

Collaborative law offers many benefits. When representing clients in the collaborative process, we have found that it tends to result in more creative solutions and be less expensive. It is often quicker than a litigated divorce that may drag on for months or even years. Because it is fundamentally nonadversarial, participants are spared the stress and anxiety that is part of most litigated divorces. Unlike divorce mediation, the collaborative process allows each party to be represented by legal counsel.

An Advocate For Collaborative Law

Our founding attorney, Maribeth Blessing, is a strong advocate of the collaborative law process. She has found it especially effective in resolving disputes over child custody arrangements. Attorney Blessing is a member of organizations such as Collaborative Family Law Affiliates, the International Academy of Collaborative Professionals and the Collaborative Law Professionals of Southeastern Pennsylvania, and has spoken to legal groups on the benefits of using collaborative law in matters involving divorce, custody and support.
