Attorneys

My name is Michael McMain. I am a partner with the law firm of Busald Funk Zevely. I have been practicing family law since 1981. Family law cases make up a substantial portion of my practice. After forty years of family court litigation, it is a privilege to be a member of The Academy of Northern Kentucky Collaborative Professionals, Inc.

Our collaborative group is excited to offer the option of allowing people going through the divorce process of staying out of court and respectfully and privately resolving their differences in the collaborative process.

If you are interested in using the collaborative process, please allow me the opportunity to assist you.

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.
