If you'd like to dissolve your marriage without all the mud-slinging, a collaborative divorce is your best option. Both parties retain separate attorneys who agree beforehand that they cannot represent either party in any future litigation.


Unlike a mediator, who must remain neutral, a collaborative attorney can offer legal advice and strategy so you rest assured that you get the best outcome. You are permitted to have your attorney by your side providing guidance every step of the way.


Since all parties sign an agreement not to litigate at the outset of the process, everyone is highly motivated to settle any issues respectfully and with dignity.


Collaborative divorces save time, money, and stress - everything is on your timeline instead of relying on a slow court system. If you are interested in getting divorced without getting the courts involved, contact Ruppert Law Firm for a free consultation to discuss your collaborative divorce options. We'll fight when we need to, and compromise when the time is right.

Most importantly, we have the wisdom to know the difference.
