No one gets married or has children together with the plan of separating. If you find yourself at such an uncertain and important juncture, I recommend you consider exploring the collaborative approach to your divorce or separation. The collaborative approach provides you a unique opportunity to move forward in a way that empowers both parties and focuses on finding solutions to the unexpected problems they face. As a collaboratively trained attorney, it is my job to help you understand the law, advocate for your interest, and help guide you forward so you can make the best choices for not only yourself, but your changing family. This process is not always easy, but it is worth it. Over the years of my practice, I have represented thousands of children and parents in Northern Kentucky. I have witnessed the hurt and destruction arguing in court can do to a person and their family. That does not have to be you. There is a better way. It is my honor to help people find that path.

My ex-wife and I completed our collaborative divorce last year. It was in Kenton County. The process worked very well. Most importantly, our children were not adversely affected by the divorce process. We were able to cooperate with regard to them throughout the process. Because of the Collaborative Process, we did not have to experience the months-long wait for court hearings that other couples experience. We were able to control the process, and work through our divorce more efficiently than in litigation.

Preparing for and attending a collaborative meeting in a divorce is much easier than preparing for and attending a court hearing.

Divorce is always challenging, but the Collaborative Process helped reduce the level of tension and anxiety for us, especially compared to other people I have known that did not do collaborative. We learned a process of communication that we still use to resolve issues with our children.
