Many couples are able to resolve their differences without undue acrimony and without professional help. But the process of reducing their agreement to paper and the further step of obtaining a divorce based upon their agreement is more than they are able or willing to undertake. In such a case, the help of an attorney can be sufficient to achieve their goals. This can be an expeditious and cost-effective approach and Berkman Bottger Newman & Rodd, LLP can prepare and file all paperwork necessary to obtain an uncontested divorce.
Where the expectations or desires of the respective parties are too far apart to effect an easy resolution, and where neither formal mediation nor collaborative law are desired, separate retention of attorneys to engage in negotiations may be called for. Such negotiations need not lead to court, but the attorneys are retained with that possibility in mind.
Key to a successful negotiation is that the parties understand fully the financial and other perhaps unforeseen consequences of suggested settlement options. The attorneys at Berkman Bottger Newman & Rodd, LLP are knowledgeable in working with high-value complex financial affairs and offer clear and common-sense advice to our clients.
Berkman Bottger Newman & Rodd, LLP’s commitment to each client is to protect, support and vigorously advocate on his or her behalf. Their clients know they can count on them to provide the strength, compassion and legal expertise necessary to guide them through one of the most difficult times in their lives.
