The dissolution of a marriage and division of a family is generally the most trying times in a person’s life and is comparable to experiencing the death of a loved one. People feel an array of emotions including denial, anger, sadness and eventually, acceptance. There is nothing worse than litigating your life in front of a Court while experiencing these feelings.
Virginia believes that by using the collaborative approach, it provides her clients, and the family, the most positive and peaceful way to transition. Her goal with collaborative is, through working cooperatively with a team of professionals, to reach a non-litigious resolution, controlled by the clients, with as minimal conflict as possible.
