Process Differences between Collaborative Law, Litigation and Mediation- The Process Chosen Can Make All the Difference

March 14, 2017 by Brett Jones

During a consultation with one of the attorneys in our office, we customarily will review the different process options  to divorce. (There are three ways and Lazar & Schwartz does all of them.)    As experienced attorneys, we have learned how important it is to educate our clients from the moment we meet, about their options to get divorced.  The process chosen to get divorced is one of the most critical decisions a person can make.    That choice can make all the difference for everyone involved, including but not limited to  the impact the divorce will have on children; the cost of the process; and in the type of resolution reached.   The article below describes the three ways and their differences. It is from a Toronto law firm but the process descriptions and their differences are the same in New York. You can read the article here.


Before selecting the process option, you should always consult with an experienced attorney who will provide you with more information about these process options and will guide you to make the best choice for you and your family.
