Tasha Schaffner first became an attorney to help others find justice. Over her years of practice, she came to focus on collaborative family law to help people find the best way forward. Those two principles guide her every day, with every client.

She knows how hard it can be for clients to trust a stranger to manage such important aspects of their family life, and she works hard to guide them through emotionally challenging issues to find the right solutions. By taking a collaborative approach to family law issues associated with divorce, adoption, and prenuptial agreements, she strives to reach clients’ objectives with minimal conflict.

A longtime member of the Academy of Northern Kentucky Collaborative Professionals, she served on the Board of Directors from 2010-2014 and also participates actively with the International Association of Collaborative Professionals and the Cincinnati Academy of Collaborative Professionals.

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.
