Collaborative Law Attorneys in Gresham
Working Together to Achieve Positive Results
When taking a collaborative approach to a family law case, each party has their own attorney but agrees to reach an agreement and settle without a trial. Whether you and the other party can agree on several issues or not, you may each benefit from having your own attorney.
If your case is particularly complex, collaborative law is a good option as you each have an attorney at your side, but you have the benefit of being in control and settling the issues without a judge’s intervention. Because over 90% of all cases settle without a trial, you can take litigation off the table and commit to settling without appearing before a judge.
When you retain our Gresham collaborative law attorneys, we fight hard to protect your best interests while helping you reach a favorable compromise on any contested issues. You can count on Gresham Family & Bankruptcy Law to help you navigate and resolve your case effectively.

How the Collaborative Approach Works in Oregon
The parties and the attorney develop a team approach to help resolve issues such as:
Remember: you both make your own decisions and you are not ordered to accept a certain outcome. From the beginning, you both agree that you will share all information and that you will resolve the remaining issues without resorting to court. You may involve other professionals (called coaches) to advise you regarding your finances and to answer your questions about support, your children, and the division property. You may also agree to use a mediator if there are final tough decisions. If you cannot agree, you still have the right to resort to court.
