There are as many divorce experiences as there are people. Have you ever asked yourself, "there has to be another way, a better way?" Traditional court and litigation in divorce is not for everyone, nor is litigation a requirement to obtain a divorce. It is possible to complete a divorce without having set foot in a court. Stacey can assist families who wish to use the alternative dispute resolution method of mediation or collaborative law to resolve their family law matter. To mediate a matter or participate in the collaborative law process both parties must agree to participate in the mediation or collaborative law process. Stacey has completed a 40-hour mediation training in accordance with the California Dispute Resolution Programs Act and completed an Introductory Interdisciplinary Collaborative Law Training in addition to other alternative dispute resolution trainings.
If you are working with an outside mediator and need an attorney to work with you on preparation of financials, review of a marital settlement agreement, judgment packet, or just to provide general legal advice, Stacey provides consultation services to individuals working to resolve their dissolution through mediation. In addition, if you prefer to handle your dissolution yourself, Stacey can work with individuals to provide legal advice, education, document preparation, and generally to ensure the matter goes as smoothly as possible.
