Family law involves a variety of legal matters. These areas include divorce, separation, parental rights, and parental responsibilities. Except for adoption, which can be one of the happiest and most exciting times in a person’s life, most of these matters are among the most unpleasant and emotionally charged events a person will encounter.
Our Maine family law attorneys at Gross, Minsky & Mogul, P.A., follow an approach that seeks, whenever possible, to resolve these matters amicably. It is also important to our attorneys that matters are resolved in the children’s best interest. Mediation may also be an efficient and less traumatic process for resolution of family disputes.
Collaborative Divorce In Maine
Collaborative divorce is a new way to “restructure a family.” Collaborative divorce does not involve the courts until an agreement on all issues has been reached. Beginning with a voluntary exchange of information, and a team approach, group meetings consist of goal-setting, brainstorming and problem-solving.
The process is intended to:
- Reduce the bitterness of divorce
- Give the parties control of the outcome
- Allow for a “divorce with dignity”
Only a handful of attorneys in the greater Bangor area are trained in collaborative divorce. Here at Gross, Minsky & Mogul, P.A., we are honored to have this option available to our clients and our Maine community.
