The Law Office of Peggy J. Anderson, P.C., provides a broad set of legal services as it pertains to family law matters.
Specific Family Law services include:
* In the Collaborative Divorce process, the participants each have experienced divorce attorneys with advanced and specific training in non-adversarial conflict resolution techniques. Instead of going to court to argue over and litigate issues such as parental responsibilities, spousal maintenance and property division, the participants and their attorneys (along with any needed experts) meet in a series of informal, four-way settlement conferences. They jointly discuss the issues, share full disclosure of all relevant information and work to develop solutions that are more creative and acceptable to both parties then having a decision made by the Court in an adversarial hearing. The Collaborative Divorce model views divorce as the restructuring of the family, not a battle to be won or lost. The model is successful because it provides the participants with an optimal setting, atmosphere and support system to enable them to settle their divorce issues. It empowers them to reach their own solutions to sometimes difficult divorce issues, thereby improving the chances for long-term goodwill and a sense of satisfaction that a fair and just resolution was reached when the divorce process is completed. The attorneys are not there to do battle with each other, but are charged with guiding the process for the divorcing couple, and collaborating on solutions.
