What Type of Divorce Cases Benefit From Negotiation?2020-01-27T19:38:34+00:00

All. Through successful negotiation, you can resolve your divorce case on your own terms. Even when a full resolution is not obtained, often parties can resolve some conflicts, thus limiting the extent of the litigation. At a minimum, there is a wealth of information to obtain about the other side’s position and a benefit to ascertaining the strength of your case. Our attorneys, Donna Buttler and Ann Newman, always look for a way to resolve a case by negotiation.

Can Negotiation Limit the Cost of a Divorce?2020-01-27T19:42:48+00:00
