Our Knowledge, Your Options
At Bloch & Whitehouse, P.A., we understand that every client and every case is different. In many situations, it is not necessary to ever see the inside of a courtroom. Rather, disputes can be resolved through direct communication with the opposing party or opposing counsel at a settlement conference, in written correspondence or the like resulting in a full and final agreement that is submitted to the Court administratively. In those situations, the decision not to rush to the courthouse can save substantial costs to the client, both financially and emotionally.
In some situations, court intervention is unavoidable as a result of the absence of cooperation or reasonableness on the part of the other party or other issues such as domestic abuse or substance abuse. In those situations, seeking relief from the court quickly and effectively becomes necessary to achieve much-needed results.
Many family law issues, such as child custody, are appropriate for mediation. Mediation is a voluntary process whereby a neutral third person facilitates communication between you and the other party and assists you in reaching an agreement in your case. The attorneys at Bloch & Whitehouse, P.A., are family mediators and qualified neutrals under Rule 114.
Still, other cases are appropriate for the collaborative law process. The goal of the collaborative process is to reach a full and final settlement without court intervention while maintaining a level of openness and mutual respect that enables parties and their children to move forward and thrive in the future. The attorneys at Bloch & Whitehouse, P.A., are members of the Collaborative Law Institute. For additional information regarding collaborative practice go to www.collaborativelaw.org.
