DIVORCE WITHOUT LITIGATION. The decision to divorce is difficult. Before you select a process that makes it even more painful, you owe it to yourself to explore all options as to how to divorce. Many people assume that they need a judge to make all the decisions for them. In reality only about one every ten cases ever goes to trial. The rest are the result of an agreement by the parties. So why take that path of preparing for a trial that doesn’t happen? Before you commence divorce litigation, explore an alternative out-of-court process such as collaborative divorce or mediation. It is crucial that you get information about your divorce alternatives as early as possible to consider all options available to you and the best fit for you, your family, and finances.
At the Law Office of Anna-Maria Pittella, we offer a wide range of alternatives such as collaborative divorce, mediation and negotiation to creatively and effectively resolve your divorce or separation and family law issues or pre-nuptial matters involving custody, support, property distribution.
