Collaborative Divorce and Litigation
You can divorce without going to court…
Westside Collaborative Law PLLC can help you create an agreement that is fair and specific to your personal situation. We help you stay out of court. Washington State requires every couple who is divorcing to attend mandatory mediation, and 98% of all cases settle out of court. You have more control than you think. You can create a fair and private process, even if you and your spouse are having some conflict.
Once you have your agreement, we can file the paperwork for you. You never have to go to court.
How much time and energy you spend on a conflict before you settle your divorce is in your control, even if it doesn’t feel that way. Jeff Steen and his former wife spent tens of thousands of dollars on litigation, only to end up with a mediated agreement that was very similar to the agreement they started with. All their conflict was expensive and unproductive.
The experience inspired Westside Collaborative Law’s approach. We are here to help you move on with your life and take charge of your divorce.
