We Do Divorce Differently:
We Focus on Your Family’s Long-Term Well Being
Many marriages and partnerships with children end in divorce or separation. If the relationship between the parents remains respectful and the parents support each other, children in divorced families can grow up to be healthy, well-adjusted adults.
However, most divorce attorneys think of divorce cases as something that needs to be “won”. Some use overly aggressive and inflammatory tactics, which only promote conflict and increase legal fees. In many cases, the legal process destroys a family’s well-being. “Winning” in these cases often means everyone loses.
The most potent predictor of children’s adjustment after a divorce is the level of conflict between the parents following the divorce. And the most potent predictor of parental conflict following divorce is how the divorce is handled in the legal system.
That’s why we handle divorce cases differently.
Integrative Family Law Helps Families
Integrative Family Law’s founder, Carol Bailey, served as a Guardian ad Litem for children in difficult family law cases for more than two decades. During this time, she realized the legal process was the cause of needless destruction of relationships important to the well-being of the parents and the children.
Many times the parents saw their relationships with their in-laws, friends and larger social circle disintegrate with the divorce to the detriment of the entire family, particularly the children.
As a divorce attorney, Bailey realized she could foster a different outcome, one that benefits the parents and the children.
Integrative Family Law creates a strategy and guides clients toward decisions that serve not only their short-term legal interests but also their long-term health and financial well-being. The firm’s attorneys strive to minimize the impact the legal process has on the clients and their relationships. In many cases, this approach results in reduced legal fees.
