Get Divorced Without Going to War
- Divorce mediation — An experienced attorney mediator can help you discuss your differences, find common ground solutions and customize your marital settlement agreement. (See our Mediation FAQs.) Attorney Reineke handles both pre-suit (voluntary) and post-filing (court-ordered) mediations.
- Parent coordination — A trained parent coordinator can bring sanity and solutions to high-conflict child custody disputes, enabling co-parents to communicate, cooperate and agree on a parenting plan and shared parenting roles without resorting to litigation.
- Uncontested divorce and agreements — If you agree on all facets of asset division, parenting arrangements, financial support and alimony, Attorney Reineke can draft your settlement agreement and all the necessary court documents. The mediation setting allows couples to work through any unresolved issues to go forward with an uncontested divorce.
- Collaborative divorce — In divorces with complex assets or custody disputes, collaborative divorce is another alternative to divorce litigation. Like traditional mediation the focus is on settlement and not litigation. The spouses and their attorneys sign an agreement not to litigate, setting the tone for an amicable settlement.
