Collaborative Law – An Alternative to Litigation

Torrance Family Lawyer – (310) 904-6648

Serious family law disputes and divorce can conjure up images of stress, arguments, and frustrations. At Patricia Barberis, A Law Corporation, we believe that one possible option is collaborative law or mediation to help steer both you and your spouse away from the uncomfortable conflicts that can occur in a divorce. With our guidance, it could be entirely possible that you complete a divorce with less acrimony, all thanks to the opportunity that you can work together one more time.

When both spouses genuinely try to make collaborative family law processes work, the benefits can be:

  • Less stress needed to conclude the family law or divorce case.
  • More control of the situation, decisions, and final conclusion.
  • More relaxed setting promotes an exchange of ideas and information.

Our firm has years of experience managing the most complex and sensitive family law cases. She is more than capable of guiding you to a beneficial outcome to your case.
